Mark your calendars! Monday March 12th is a very important date for the Nanaimo Recycling Exchange. Representatives from the NRE will make a crucial funding request to the City of Nanaimo.
As we reported previously the Regional District of Nanaimo board of directors has voted to provide $300,000 a year for five years to the NRE, beginning in 2019, as part of the RDN’s new solid waste management plan. It’s a solid step in the right direction but not enough to allow the NRE to move forward with building a new facility on their Kenworth Rd. property.
If the City of Nanaimo commits to provide a similar level of funding as the regional district, a better, safer, more efficient Nanaimo Recycling Exchange will be much closer to becoming a reality.
RSVP on Facebook today and please be there to show our councillors that we value our non-profit community recycling centre. Thank you!
Ilan Goldenblatt – Vote Yes NRE campagin

Jan Hastings – NRE Executive Director
Please note: These delegations were originally scheduled for Monday February 26th, but they are now scheduled for Monday March 12th.
