BIM receives infrastructure planning grant

At the 2016 Union of BC Municipalities Convention, Bowen Island Municipality was awarded $10,000 from the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development to further research the creation of a composting facility on Bowen Island.

We already divert more than 70% of our solid waste from the landfill. A facility to handle organic waste on the Island could reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by an estimated 4%, among other benefits.

BIM would like to thank the volunteers of the On-Island Composting Facility Working Group (OICFWG), Peter Taggart and Mary Ellen deGrace, whose report was instrumental to the successful funding application. The next steps in the project will be public consultation and outreach.
