It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Brian Davies.
Brian led or contributed to the development of many solid waste policies and programs, some of which are still in place today in their various current forms, including the last two regional solid waste management plans, Vancouver’s first blue box and apartment recycling programs, the launch of Vancouver’s Green Bin program for yard trimmings, the City’s conversion to automated garbage and Green Bin collection, the first landfill gas collection system at the Vancouver Landfill, and the Vancouver Landfill’s award winning landfill gas co-generation system to name just a few. Brian was also a Board Director of the BC Yukon Chapter of SWANA and remained active with volunteer work, his family and recreational pursuits after he retired from the City. Brian was a mentor to many staff during his long and successful career at the City, and will be missed. [Link to Obituary]
