Compost Site

COMPOST SITE

The Compost Site is available for yard and garden waste only from 7 a.m. to 3:30 pm, 7 days per week.

No household garbage or recyclables.
Monitoring of the Compost Site can be expected and hours of access changed (gate closed) if the compost site is used as a garbage dump or otherwise vandalized. Please report abuse to 250.767.2108.

Dumping of garbage, oil, building materials and other non-organic material is not OK at any time including when no-one is watching.

Impressive Behaviour at the Compost Site:

    - One fellow emptied his truck of branches and then walked the larger branches, cut into firewood size pieces, over to the wood pile!
    - One fellow with a load of old hay bales, took all the string off the bales before unloading the hay!

Vandals

    - Dumping drywall. Even little pieces are not allowed.
    - Dumping boards with nails, rotten wood, railway ties.
    - Dumping tires, furniture, and other garbage.
The Compost Site is located about 6 km up Princeton Avenue. Princeton Ave will turn to gravel (travel less than1/2 km on gravel), turn right at the cattle guard, read and obey the signs.

ACCEPTABLE: Grass, leaves, pine needles, cones, windfall fruit, garden plants, branches and tree prunings, and christmas trees.

NOT ACCEPTABLE: Household hazardous waste including solvent, oil, pesticides, paint, cleaners; construction, demolition and renovation debris including asphalt, drywall, concrete, large trees and stumps, all paper and cardboard. Loads containing these items are subject to fines.
