Did you know? The green waste collected from Bowen Island travels all the way to Pemberton to be composted. This is expensive and not very sustainable. Disposal fees for green waste have increased substantially since 2016, from $65/ton to $95/ton. Another increase to $120/ton is proposed for next year – that’s almost DOUBLE!
