Garbage Collection and Disposal Update

March 21, 2020

In January 2020, the Board resolved to begin the provision of garbage collection and disposal. This was due in part to a letter received from Islands Trust requesting a long-term solution to garbage collection on Mayne Island. We wish to inform the public the District remains intent on providing a permanent solution to garbage collection and disposal.

Since January we have entered into negotiations with the landowner of the only available adequately zoned property on Mayne Island to provide parking for garbage collection vehicles. The terms of this lease have been agreed upon, although the agreement must be formally approved by the Board of Trustees in a public meeting. This is on the agenda of the next special Board meeting April 3rd.

On Thursday March 12th, the Garbage collection and disposal tender opportunity closed. This past week we interviewed for this contract. The successful proponent must be formally approved by the Board before an announcement can be made to the public. This is also on the agenda of the next meeting of the Board.

The Board is cognisant of the fact that we are in difficult times due to COVID-19 and it may not be possible to meet as a Board. If this is the case service will be delayed until sometime after the next Board meeting.


February 21st, 2020

MIID posted a Request for Proposals on BC Bid and that has now closed. The Board was not satisfied with the response and has therefore decided to amend the Request for Proposals and advertise the revised request next week on BC Bid and The updated Request for Proposals will be open for no longer than two weeks, after which the Board will provide an update.

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.


Board of Trustees,
