New Hazardous Waste Collection Depot for Salmon Arm

Thursday, November 23, 2017

The Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) is opening a permanent household hazardous waste collection depot at the Salmon Arm Landfill.  The depot will initially be open between 9 AM and 4 PM daily from November 25, 2017 to December 2, 2017.  After December 2, 2017 the depot will be open on Saturdays only from 9 AM to 4 PM. 

“Historically, opportunities to recycle household hazardous waste were only available through one day round-up events held every second year.” explains Carmen Fennell, Waste Reduction Facilitator. “This permanent depot will provide residents with convenient, year round opportunities to dispose of household hazardous waste.”

Residential quantities of household hazardous waste will be accepted at no cost.  Materials accepted at the depot include:

  • Mercury
  • Solvents
  • Grease
  • Pool chemicals
  • Pesticides
  • Tar
  • Adhesives
  • Any item that may be flammable, corrosive, reactive or toxic

Please note that oil and household paint with a label are not accepted at the hazardous waste depot and must be returned to an appropriate collection depot.
