Northern Rockies Regional Municipality

Let's Talk Trash

Thanks for talking trash with us!

Residents of the Northern Rockies provided great feedback regarding the update of the Solid Waste Management Plan (SWMP). The SWMP is a regulatory document that outlines how the municipality will manage and dispose of solid waste over the next 25 years. The Public Advisory Committee (PAC) will be reviewing information and updating the draft plan to reflect feedback received.

The Let's Talk Trash traveling display booth was set up at various locations around town throughout April and May. To find out where it was, checkout the location callendar.


Tim Siemens was the winner of the grand prize Food Cycler indoor compost unit. The Food Cycler reduces kitchen scraps by up to 90% into a rich fertilizer amendment in less than 3 hours. A prize that will prevent food waste from entering the Northern Rockies landfill.Shawn Merwin and Glenn Skinner were also winners, taking home tumbling style backyard composters.
