    Business Recycling in the RDOS Just Got Easier Regional District of Okanagan Similkmaneen (RDOS) Information Release March 15, 2019 The Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen (RDOS) is pleased to announce the launch of three recycling toolkits to help decrease waste and improve recycling in the region. The purpose of the toolkits is to provide guidance on how to create successful recycling programs for businesses, multi-family buildings, festivals and events. Each toolkit contains a how-to guide, best practices, signage examples, and many other resources. The toolkits are available online and can be downloaded for free. The creation of these toolkits is the culmination of the two-year Business Education Program conducted by the RDOS and GreenStep Solutions. This program included extensive consultation with the business community, waste audits and research on what other communities are doing. During consultation, businesses said they were unsure of what to recycle. They also felt recycling was too complicated. The most commonly suggested solution was providing more education on what is recyclable and what collection services are available. The toolkits provide customized recycling guides, step-by-step manuals and a business directory of recycling and waste haulers. To access the toolkits, visit http://www.rdos.bc.ca/departments/public-works/solid-waste/business-and-multi-family-recycling/  Coming up in 2019-2020, the RDOS will be working to get these toolkits out into the community and find ways to work with businesses. For more information on the Business Education Program, contact the RDOS Public Works Department at 250-490-4129, info@rdos.bc.ca or visit www.rdos.bc.ca Karla Kozakevich, Chair Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen

At this point time I am still focused on the tasks at hand over the next 6 months”. “Mr. Romanko’s departure in August will be a loss for the Town of Osoyoos.
