All Solid Waste Refuse Disposal Sites (landfills and transfer stations) within the Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) are operated by the CSRD. Landfill sites can be found in the CSRD municipalities of Salmon Arm, Sicamous, Revelstoke and Golden. Transfer Stations are located in Seymour Arm, Scotch Creek, Skimikin (Tappen), Glenemma, Falkland, Malakwa, Trout Lake and Parson.

The Salmon Arm waste shed includes Salmon Arm and surrounding areas as well as the communities of Seymour Arm, Scotch Creek, Skimikin, Falkland and Glenemma. The Sicamous waste shed consists of the municipality of Sicamous and surrounding area. The Revelstoke waste shed includes the municipality of Revelstoke and outlying areas including Malakwa and Trout Lake. The Golden waste shed includes Golden and outlying areas including Parson.
