    Information from Al Richmond, Cariboo Regional District Director

  • 108 Mile Ranch (historically known as 108 Mile House) is a residential community situated in the heart of the South Cariboo region of British Columbia, surrounded by rolling hills, ranches, thousands of lakes and a wide range of recreational activities.

    Historically, en route to the great Cariboo Gold Rush, a few of the travellers settled here, carving out a place that would withstand the changes in time. For recent history, read The Grand Scheme of the Ranch.

    Subsidized Composters 2014

    The Cariboo Regional District is selling subsidized composters again this year and has added the option of Green Cone Food Waste Digesters that will accept ALL cooked and uncooked food waste including meat, fish, bones, dairy products, vegetables and fruit! The popular Sure Close counter top containers will also be available.

    Visit the following websites for more information greencone.ca, earthmachine.com, or sure-close.com. Sales this year will be ADVANCED, meaning you must sign up for a composter or Green Cone before the end of March to receive them in May. For advance sales or further information talktrash@cariboord.bc.ca or call 250-392-3351 or toll free 1-800-665-1636.

    All CRD and member municipality residents are eligible.

    Start composting and make a difference! Composting at home reduces greenhouse gas production, reduces garbage transportation costs, reduces landfill leachate production, extends the life of our landfills and utilizes the nutrients in your food waste.

    911 Service

    Beginning this fall, 9-1-1 calls from Fraser-Fort George, Cariboo, Bulkley-Nechako and Kitimat-Stikine Regional Districts these areas will be answered through E-Comm, the emergency communication centre located in southwest British Columbia. At present, the service is contracted with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police for call answer services. The Regional Districtís contract with the RCMP expired this year and that has provided the opportunity to explore other options for call answer services. The change is expected to come into effect sometime later this year. For more information see the Latest News on the CRD website.
