Welcome to our Watershed!
The Kennebecasis Watershed Restoration Committee or "KWRC" is a non-profit organization whose mission is to restore the Kennebecasis River Watershed back to a sustainable ecosystem.
We strive to undertake strategic habitat restoration, monitoring efforts, and educational initiatives to promote public awareness and participation in the restoration of the Kennebecasis River Watershed.
The Kennebecasis Watershed Restoration Committee wants to acknowledge that the land on which we gather is the traditional unceded territory of the Wolastoqiyik Wahsipekuk (Maliseet), Wabanaki and Mi’kma’ki Peoples.
The KWRC has partnered with RSC8 in Sussex to bring you the Agricultural Plastic Disposal Pilot Project.
Started on April 4th, 2022, producers can bring their agricultural plastics to the Regional Waste Management Facility in Sussex on Mondays, free of charge.
Due to the success we've seen so far,
the program has been extended to run until February 27th.
Through this project we hope to provide producers a convenient way to properly dispose of these plastics while diverting it from environment. The weight of plastics dropped off during the timeframe of this project will help the KWRC understand the success of this disposal method.
Registration is required to utilize this program:
