Fees at Campbell Mountain, Oliver and Okanagan Falls Landfills and Keremeos Transfer Station will be amended starting May 1st, 2015. Changes affect burnt materials and metal tanks brought to the landfill. There are no changes to regular garbage rates.
Burnt materials generally come from structure fires. Some of the burnt materials may contain asbestos, lead, mercury or other hazards and must be landfilled carefully. Construction materials do not compact easily and take up a large amount of space in landfills.
The lowest fees to dispose of burnt material will be at the Campbell Mountain and Oliver Landfills. These landfills can handle burnt materials better than other RDOS facilities.
Additionally, a $1 fee per propane and other fuel tanks will take effect at all landfills as of May 1st. This fee will apply to refillable and non-refillable tanks that hold a gas under pressure.
Copies of the updated fees are available online or can be requested by contacting the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen. For more information please contact the RDOS at 250-490- 4129, toll free at 1-877-610-3737, e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or online at www.rdos.bc.ca.
