All bins have an electronic ID tag that is linked to your specific property, and must stay at the assigned residence even if you move.

If damage or vandalism of the bins results from negligence, residents will be responsible for obtaining a new bin from the District and paying the replacement cost. Please call 250-567-4711 to report your issue.
