Keep all plastics out of your organics bin

Please do not use bags labelled “compostable” or “biodegradable” to collect kitchen scraps. Plastics, including those marked biodegradable, do not belong in the organics as they do not break down properly during processing. Paper bags and newsprint can be used to line your kitchen container.

Keep plastics and plastic bags (even those marked biodegradable) out of the green bin.

Housing on Bowen

Municipal Council has placed a high priority on a series of initiatives to create more housing options. As a small municipality, Bowen doesn’t have the kind of money required to provide subsidized housing. What we can do is enact policies to facilitate more appropriate construction. Today these initiatives are beginning to bear fruit. They range from seniors’ housing to diverse uses for the Community Lands (including affordable housing) to strata apartments to detached secondary suites.
