Carey McIver

Carey McIver, formerly Manager of Solid Waste for the Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN), is a solid waste management specialist with over twenty-five years of hands-on experience designing, delivering, and evaluating plans, policies, programs and facilities for waste diversion, recovery and disposal. Under her leadership the RDN implemented an award-winning Zero Waste Program that reduced waste disposal from all sectors to 350 kg per capita. Organic diversion was integral to this success and at the RDN Carey directed: the development of supporting policies (waste stream management licensing, disposal bans); the implementation of commercial and residential collection programs; the construction of a food waste transfer station; and the negotiation of a long-term processing agreement with a private sector facility operator. Since starting her own consulting firm, Carey has built on this experience to develop solid waste management plans and organic diversion strategies for numerous regional districts in BC as they strive to meet their waste diversion and climate change mitigation targets.
