The Cariboo Regional District (CRD) will be extending the deadline for its waste management survey.
The decision comes as little response was given from communities across the region on the proposed curbside and solid waste management plan.
“We did mail out over 7,000 direct pieces of mail asking people who are in proposed curbside areas if they were in favour of the service,” says Tera Grady, Manager of Solid Waste.
“and we’ve had less than 10 percent response to those mail outs.”
Grady added that there’s concern that people either didn’t read their mail, or are uninterested providing feedback.
While there isn’t necessarily a threshold needing to be met, she says that more participation will help make a decision for residence.
In a release from the CRD, they said 15 Quesnel residents completed the survey, with 63 in Williams Lake and 43 in 100 Mile House.
If the CRD doesn’t receive more feedback for the proposal, the takeaway will be that nobody is interested and won’t do another extension.
The cut off to fill out the survey will now be on Monday, June 5th at midnight.
