Whistler has a mission to achieve zero waste. As a community with strong sustainability goals, organizations across the community have been working together to improve the ways in which waste material is managed.

In recognition that some properties will need help adapting to the updated waste regulations a series of workshops are being offered to help properties prepare. The workshops will provide:

  • A brief overview of the RMOW’s revised Solid Waste Bylaw
  • Practical guidance on updating shared waste storage spaces in Commercial and Multi-Family Accommodation properties – from building and retro-fitting garbage rooms to access and signage.
  • Key steps to take to ensure unit occupants use new waste systems successfully – from engaging long-term residents and short-term visitors to training staff and monitoring waste within a business.
  • Access to a wide-range of free guides and tools to take away and use following the workshop.

The one-hour workshops will be packed with practical guidance. In recognition that every business and property is different the workshops focus on common themes and provide links and tools to more detailed information, which attendees can access while working to implement new waste systems. There will also be time following the workshop to connect with AWARE and RMOW staff on questions specific to individual properties or business actions.
