Ask the Ambassadors

Have a question about sorting waste or keeping bears away? The City’s Ambassadors are here to help!

The City has hired two Ambassadors until the end of 2018 to work with the community to improve compliance with the Solid Waste Bylaw – in particular, sorting waste property and securing bear attractants. These are important programs that help keep our community safe and green, and save taxpayers money. Starting in spring 2018, the program will also educate residents about the regional water-use restrictions.

Ambassadors are available to answer your questions, provide resources and make presentations to groups, stratas and schools.

Meet the Ambassadors:

Mahdis has a background in customer relations and marketing, and is a seasoned recycler and green waste composter.

“I’m very excited to be in a position where I can help shape people’s outlooks and behaviours, educate our future generations and contribute to global conservation efforts.”

Justin has a background in communication design and has worked in the waste solutions industry.

“I want to get more people excited about doing their part because we can only achieve this goal if we work together as a community.”
