Update - Garbage Collecton

January 20, 2020

In November the Mayne Island Improvement District (MIID) received a letter from Islands Trust requesting a long-term solution to garbage collection on Mayne Island. In response to this letter and the current lapse in garbage collection service on island, the District has resolved to begin the provision of garbage collection and disposal as described in the Letters Patent, section 3.


MIID has posted a Request for Proposals on BC Bid and In addition to this MIID has entered into lease negotiations with the owner of an appropriately zoned property and intends to provide the successful applicant with 4 parking stalls to park and store their garbage collection vehicles. This action will involve a small parcel tax to all properties on Mayne Island as well as a fee for service for those who use the service. The Board believes this is a reasonable, cost-effective method of taxation to ensure garbage collection is provided on the island.


The successful applicant will be announced at the February 18th public board meeting at the Fire Hall (1pm). We anticipate weekly garbage collection service to be in place shortly thereafter. If you have any questions or concerns please either attend the meeting in person or call the MIID office at 250-539-5116.
