Drastic drop in South Cariboo cattle
Pete Bonter is a third-generation rancher whose six children have all decided to pursue other, more lucrative career choices than agriculture.“Historically, we have smaller ranches in the South Cariboo anyhow but the demographics of it is that we’re all getting older and this is a particularly hard area to ranch in,” says Bonter. “The shift right now is from smaller to larger holdings."

April 27, 2017
The Cariboo Regional District (CRD) has entered into a contract with Recycle BC to collect packaging and printed paper from the 108 Mile Ranch. Contamination (any item that's not packaging or printed paper, i.e. plastic toys, rubber balls, shoes etc.) needs to be below 3 percent. In 2016, contamination was at 20 per cent. Consequently, the CRD will randomly audit curbside recycling totes. Totes with visible contamination will not be collected and left with information explaining why.
