There are changes coming to regional landfills and transfer stations.
Starting July 1, operating hours at many regional transfer stations and landfills are changing effective July 1. The changes in hours allow the regional district to streamline operations and waste hauling while aligning site hours with current visitation patterns. Full information on the adjusted hours for transfer stations and landfills beginning July 1 is available by calling the Regional District office or online at www.rdffg.bc.ca
Also starting on July 1, fees are changing for the disposal of demolition, construction and land clearing waste to encourage more recycling of these materials. Producers of this type of waste can either bring it to Foothills Boulevard Regional Landfill and pay a reduced tipping fee for having it sorted or bring separated material to one of the recycling facilities in town. Unsorted demolition, construction and land clearing waste will be subject to increased fees.
