It’s time for a summer cleaning spree on Bowen
Bowen Island Waste Services is holding its summer clean-up day July 16 from 9 to 5.

Items included are almost anything – besides hazardous materials – not picked up in regular service, including drywall if it’s properly bagged. Appliances, metal, batteries and furniture are staples.
There will be a hazardous waste drop-off on July 23 at Bowen Building Centre from 9 to 3.
The July 16 drop-off is at in the parking lot outside the gate into BIRD from 9 to 5.
