Free Disposal for Illegal Dumping Clean Ups!

In lieu of Trash Bash (canceled in 2020 and 2021), the qathet Regional District is offering residents two options for free disposal of illegally dumped trash:

  1. Illegal Dumping Clean Up Event: Saturday, August 21st, 2021 – 8 am – 5 pm. Groups and individuals are invited to clean up illegal dumpsites, trails and beaches and drop off their collected materials for free at Augusta Recyclers (7346 Highway 101, Powell River, BC). This is a one day only event for illegally dumped waste. No household waste will be accepted.
  2. Illegal Dumping Disposal Fee Waiver. If you miss this one day event and are interested in cleaning up an illegal dumpsite, you can apply for a disposal fee waiver. Pre-approval through Let’s Talk Trash is required.  Once approved, a physical copy of your waiver (issued through the qathet Regional District) must be submitted to Augusta Recyclers staff when dropping off collected illegally dumped trash. No household waste will be accepted. Fill in this application form and submit to Let’s Talk Trash at OR drop off a hard copy at #105 – 4675 Marine Avenue, Powell River, BC. 


Thanks to all who continue to make an effort to clean up other people’s trash so that we can all enjoy a safer and more beautiful region!
