TAKE IT ALL OFF
Refundables: Please remove your refundables.
Garbage disposal options:
* Lund wharf. This location provides garbage disposal for a fee during the Summer period.
* Lund store (when the Lund wharf is not in business). Tickets may be bought from the store to use their garbage bin.
* Recycling is now behind the Lund Hotel, concrete block building, closed Tuesday & Wednesday. Check Winter schedule.
* South of Powell River: the local dump accepts metal for free and garbage which is charged by weight. It is convenient if you are heading for the Saltery Bay ferry.
* Right beside the dump is Augusta recycling depot which accepts paper, cardboard, soft & rigid plastics, glass and cans.
* Encorp Return-It Centre beside Augusta accepts refundable containers and milk cartons (with no refund). They also accept electrical items.
* Burning compost in a hot stove is a good option for vegetable waste, coffee grounds, and egg shells. OR remove it from the island. Compost attracts rats.
* Sort paper, burn in the fireplace/stove or recycle off island.
* Rinse recyclable soft & rigid plastic, glass and cans before recycling off island. Ziplock bags need to be separated, no crinkly plastic accepted, no meat wrappers or foil chip bags. Styrofoam is accepted.
