Metro Vancouver is changing the way organics is handled in our waste stream.
By January 1, 2013 no unused food will be permitted in our garbage. In preparation for the upcoming changes, Bowen Island Municipality (BIM) is transitioning its solid waste program during the 2012 season.
Beginning Monday, June 4th, 2012, we are going to be modifying our waste collection service. The new collection service will require residents to separate their kitchen waste (unused food) from usual garbage for weekly collection. Unused food includes all foods and table scraps as well as food soiled paper and boxes.
Information flyers will be sent out to all residents as new information and guidelines are received. To view the latest flyer, please click here.
