Regional district waives fee for Sicamous’ clean up campaign

CSRD directors support Sicamous curbside pickup initiative.

District of Sicamous’ load will be lightened a bit this year. Columbia Shuswap Regional District directors agreed to waive the $35 per tonne solid waste tipping fee for metal wastes at the local landfill for the district’s annual community clean-up event scheduled for June 1 and 2.

During the clean-up the District of Sicamous will operate a curbside pick-up service for large bulky items.

Darcy Mooney, deputy manager of CSRD’s Environment and Engineering Services, told directors that the regional district offers free metal disposal at all regional district refuse disposal sites every year during a weekend in the spring.

“As this was a late initiative from the district they were not able to co-ordinate the service to coincide with the regional district’s free residential metal event between April 1 and May 3,” he said. “From the staff perspective, we’re  strongly encouraged the District of Sicamous is wanting to do this and would ask them in future to coincide with CSRD.”

Directors agreed unanimously to waive the tipping fees on metal during the District of Sicamous community clean-up event.
