Transfer station needs reuse area

I hope that people came out to the open house last night for the new transfer station and supported the idea of having a reuse area as well as composting.

Possibly these ideas are already in the plans as reuse of materials and composting would go a long way to diverting useful stuff from the landfill and reducing greenhouse gases. Now that the RDCK has a 22 acre site there should be room to do some new projects.

Many transfer stations such as Trail, Grand Forks, and others have reuse facilities which are well used by the public to both drop off and collect useable building materials and furniture, etc.

Composting even the waste just from the big box food stores alone would help divert tons of food from the landfill not to mention saving the trucking to Salmo.

This is your chance to have a say.
