Solid Waste Committee Message

Thank you to all who are donating items that have been cleaned, and that work, to our Free Store, that others can make use of again.

May we also remind everyone: before you bring in any items, please ensure that they are in working order, are cleaned and that they do not need repairing.

The summer is upon us, and that brings with it a VERY busy Solid Waste yard, which means our volunteers and staff are working extra hard (which they do anyway!). Please park in designated spots only, this will ease the days when there is added congestion.

Thank You for you ongoing support. Have a great summer!

Steve Frankel

Passing Walkers

Drivers, please be aware that when you come upon walkers on your side of the road you must SLOW DOWN and then pass them only if it's safe to do so. 

This means you cannot stay at speed and swerve into the opposite lane and expect the oncoming driver to pull off to let you by.  This is still happening all to often. 

Several residents have purchased dash cams because of this issue. 

Please take the extra three or four seconds to keep our Walkers and drivers safe.

Join the Community Bat Count

Bat Watch is a citizen science program to annually monitor bat populations in roost sites. Abandoned houses, barns, church steeples – and even currently occupied structures and bat houses – can provide a summer home to female bats and their young. Monitoring these “maternity colonies” can give biologists a good idea of how bat populations in an area are doing from year to year. With the occurrence of White-nose Syndrome in North America, monitoring these colonies is more important than ever.

Ideally, the Bat Count includes four counts during the summer - two between June 1 and 21 (before pups can fly) and two more between July 11 and August 5 (when pups are flying and exiting the roost with their mothers). Doing all four bat counts allows Bat Watch to best compare data from year to year and between sites. However, if you don't have time, you can choose your level of participation (one count, one count each period, two counts once or twice).

Here's how. It's fun and simple (glass of wine while counting is optional): 

Arrive at your bat roost at sunset (bats will begin to emerge at dusk).

The air temperature should be at least 12° (C) with low wind speed.

Sit or stand outside so that the bats' exit point is visible from a comfortable distance. More than one person might be needed if bats are exiting from multiple points.

Tally the bats as they fly out for their nightly insect eating. A hand clicker can help. 

Record your observations on the data sheet (available at

Mail your data sheet to the BC Bats Program at the end of the summer.

Do not enter bat roosts or handle the animals.

Please respect private property. Ask permission if the bat roost is on someone else's land.
