Scotch Creek Transfer Station

Scotch Creek Transfer

The Scotch Creek Transfer Station will be re-opening on Thursday, September 7 from 8 AM to 2 PM, seven days per week.

This is also the location to take all residential household garbage, metal and yard waste.

Do NOT bring any smoldering debris or hot ash to the transfer station. Major debris clean up efforts should be directed to the Salmon Arm landfill via self haul or by way of a contracted service.

Please remember, the transfer station is not a large-capacity landfill. Loads in dual-axle vehicle and/or trailer will not be accepted. These large loads need to be taken directly to the Salmon Arm Landfill at 4290 20th Ave SE, Salmon Arm (Hours Monday to Sunday 9:00am to 5:00pm)

A residential garbage bin and fridge/freezer drop off will remain available at the Ross Creek Country Store for the spoiled food from freezers and fridges., located 6929 Squilax - Anglemont Rd, Magna Bay.

If you need assistance with moving your fridge or freezer in North Shuswap, please contact John Dyck with Christian Aid Ministries at 250-517-0075.

We understand people are anxious to begin the clean-up process, however, there will be a significant demand for the service. If your need for disposal is not urgent, please consider waiting to dispose of your garbage until the initial rush subsides.

As the site will be very busy, please be kind and respectful of transfer station staff. They are doing their best to get as many people through the site as possible.

CORRECTION - Refrigerator and Freezer information:

Talk with your insurers about what to do with your home contents including spoiled food, fridges and freezers before you take any action. Insurers sometimes require an inventory or photos.  

Garbage bins for affected areas are located at Celista Fire Hall, Scotch Creek Market, Anglemont Ross Creek Store, and Lee Creek.   

Refrigerator and freezer disposal is now available for residents of Sorrento, Angelmont and St. Ives. Be sure to speak to your insurance provider before discarding your appliance.  

If you think it’s UNSAFE to open your refrigerator/freezer, or you have been instructed to discard it: Seal the doors shut with duct tape. Label the appliance “CONTAMINATED” in large print. Transport the appliance to specified locations as outlined below:
