RDN

The Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) is now accepting applications for community-level projects that monitor, restore or enhance regional watercourses.
Lisa Grant will begin her tenure as general manager for planning and development on Feb. 22, according to a media release from the regional district.
The RDN asked residents not to put out any extra waste that does not fit inside their recycling and garbage carts with lids fully closed.
The RDN said it will offer free drop off service at the Church Road Transfer Station in Parksville and the Regional Landfill because of the extended pickup delays.
The most recent service interruption was today (Dec. 30), affecting residents in Errington (Electoral Area F) and the Town of Qualicum Beach.
The decision was made in response to the latest provincial public health orders which resulted in New Year’s Eve events being cancelled.
Five mid-Island organizations will receive grant money to target the recycling of materials not currently part of a stewardship program or an established commercial market and would otherwise end up in the landfill.
The Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) board has awarded grants to 11 organizations, totalling $23,486, to be used for a variety of community and recreation focused projects.
The upgrade will help the RDN reach its goal of 90 per cent diversion of waste from the landfill by 2030 by increasing organic waste processing capacity in the region, according to a release from the regional district.
Maureen Young was director of Electoral Area C for 16 years, serving and representing the Extension, East Wellington and Pleasant Valley areas.
