Would you like to enjoy the benefits of composting as well as help reduce waste in Fort St. James?

The Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako currently has a limited amount composting kits available to residents in each community.

“We’ve received an overwhelming response so far,” Elaine Wiebe, the Environmental Services Assistant for the Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako said.

Composting is a topic of growing interest throughout the country.

Why composting? There are a number of reasons.

Composting provides a partial solution to an issue of great concern in many communities.

All around the country, landfills are filling up, garbage incineration is becoming increasingly unpopular and other waste disposal options are becoming even more difficult to find.

Composting provides a way not only of reducing the amount of waste that needs to be disposed of, but also of converting it into a product that is useful for gardening, landscaping, or house plants.

The backyard composting kits can be pre-purchased by calling the RDBN at 1-800-320-3339 or (250) 692-3195.
