Hours of operation for Sicamous’ temporary waste site have changed.

As of Friday, Aug. 10, hours for the temporary garbage disposal site, until further notice, will be from Friday to Tuesday, 10 a.m. to  4 p.m. The temporary site, located at 1450 Solsqua Rd., is available for small loads (pickup trucks or small trailers) of flood-damaged material and household garbage.

“Based on the use of the temporary site, the hours are being scaled back,” says Columbia Shuswap Regional District waste management co-ordinator Ben Van Nostrand. “These are the same hours as the Sicamous landfill when it was open, so it’s something the public is familiar with.”

Due to the recent flooding and road closures in the area of the Sicamous landfill in Two Mile, access to the site is blocked. Van Nostrand says the site will be closed for an undetermined amount of time. User fees at the temporary site apply just as they did at the regular landfill. The cost is $10 per cubic metre. As a reference, a full pickup load is approximately $20.

The temporary site will continue to be monitored for security purposes.

Van Nostrand says residents dumping their flood-damaged material should keep all their receipts as they can be reimbursed under the provincial Disaster Financial Assistance program.

Commercial and/or large loads have to go to the Salmon Arm landfill located at 4290 20th Ave. SE, Salmon Arm.

For more information contact, Van Nostrand at 250-833-5940, or email bvannostrand@csrd.bc.ca.
