CSRD picks up tab on metal waste

The Columbia Shuswap Regional District is holding its annual six-week organic and metal waste disposal event at all CSRD landfills.

Gather up all your old metal for free disposal.

The Columbia Shuswap Regional District is holding its annual six-week organic and metal waste disposal event at all CSRD landfills and transfer stations from Monday, Oct.1 to Saturday, Nov. 10.

With the free metal event, residents can drop off items such as stoves, hot water tanks, washers and dryers, metal doors and siding – all free of charge.

The organic material includes basic yard waste generated from residential properties

“There is a $15 charge on items requiring removal of ozone-depleting substances,” says CSRD waste reduction facilitator Carmen Fennell.

“The Regional District pays a contractor to remove freon from fridges, air conditioners, freezers and water coolers and this $15 charge pays for that cost.”

The six-week free-disposal event takes place at landfills and transfer stations throughout the regional district during regular site hours, with the exception of Sicamous, where an alternate location will be set up.

“Normally these events are at the Sicamous Landfill, but the road to the landfill is still closed so the alternate site is the District of Sicamous public works yard.”

The public can access the site through the gate on Hillier Road during regular landfill site hours.”

For a complete list of acceptable materials for the free-disposal event and other upcoming disposal events, visit the regional district’s website at www.csrd.bc.ca.
