Waste Management in Powell River

Powell River is striving for Zero Waste. We aim to have zero discards burnt or buried, and instead, view our discards as potential resources for new use.

The community-wide education program is constantly evolving. Check out current initiatives at the top of the page and contact the team if you have any comments, questions or concerns.
