We are delighted to announce
the Potato House Community Composting Project
for Williams Lake!
Mary Forbes, our Executive Director,
maintains compost bins along the Potato
House back lane at 49 Borland Street (next to
the Gecko Tree parking lot). They are there
to receive community household food waste
and grass clippings. Our goal is to have 500
households participating in the first year.
This will extend the life of the CRD landfill
and will provide precious compost for
The bins are receiving your compost!
According to the Cariboo Regional District, 525 tonnes of compostable food and garden waste
are collected in Williams Lake for disposal every year. This is costing taxpayers over $50,000 per
year based on $100 per tonne for transportation, operations, and reclamation at Gibraltar Mine.
Waste? The real waste is paying so much money to dispose of good organic matter!

Thank you to the Cariboo Chilcotin Beetle Action Coalition for
