Reaps working towards waste avoidance

Throughout 2014, REAPS is celebrating 25 years of 3Rs in the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George by assisting residents, businesses and institutions in reducing their waste and making greener choices.

Our main focus is on waste reduction through waste avoidance. We accomplish this through outreach and education. [more...]
