The buildings may be gone, the lot may be cleared and leveled, but the Nanaimo Recycling Exchange is still kicking!
We have an update from the Nanaimo Recycling Exchange Society:
“Since closure, the NRE Board, Executive Director and community consultants have been working diligently to compile a business plan for construction of new zero waste recycling facility. Some of this information has been presented to the public, and to local government in various formats, and some is new. The NRE wants to share it with you.
The Nanaimo Recycling Exchange invites you to attend a public engagement session and preview of the business plan. We anticipate lively discussion, questions, and feedback. This NRE will then present the plan to council as part of the ongoing request for construction funds. Your input and participation is critical in making this proposal reflect the zero waste recycling needs of the community.”
Public engagement sessions are scheduled for Saturday May 26th, 10am-12pm in Room 1 at the Beban Park Social Centre, and Wednesday May 30th, 7pm-9pm in Room 8 at the Beban Park Social Centre.
Representatives from the Nanaimo Recycling Exchange will be presenting their business plan to Nanaimo City Council at the regular council meeting on Monday June 11th at 7pm.
