Planning is well underway for the Shuswap-North Okanagan Rail Trail between Sicamous and Armstrong.
District of Sicamous
Beginning December 2, 2019, Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) residents will once again be able to drop off their household recyclables in downtown Sicamous.
If your closets are overflowing with clothes and your linens are tumbling out of their cupboard, the Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) has a new option.
The CSRD is partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters Central and Southern Interior of BC to provide designated collection bins for clothing, shoes, linens and towels.
A resolution from the District of Sicamous Council to allow for the temporary location of community recycling services at the Sicamous Return-It Bottle Depot, means the CSRD will be proceeding with plans to re-start the downtown service before the end of the year. The decision ensures the CSRD will continue to meet its commitments with Recycle BC to provide a downtown recycling option in Sicamous.
The Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) is continuing to work with the District of Sicamous on finding a suitable location to re-establish a downtown recycling depot.
Currently, there is no downtown recycling depot available, but residents can continue to take their recyclables to the Sicamous Landfill.
If you have a buoy on Shuswap or Mara Lake that has been tagged as non-compliant by Transport Canada, you may want to take action before October 21, 2019.
In an ongoing effort to clean up the spread of non-compliant buoys in the Shuswap, staff from Transport Canada will be in the region the week of October 21 to 25 to conduct an enforcement effort. This will involve the removal of buoys previously tagged as non-compliant earlier in the year.
