Winter hours in effect at most TNRD eco-depots

All are now open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday, and closed Sunday and Monday

Thompson-Nicola Regional District

As of Oct. 1, the Thompson-Nicola Regional District has shifted to winter hours at most of its eco-depots throughout the regional district.

The shift to winter hours will be in effect at eco-depots in Barriere, Clearwater, Heffley Creek, Logan Lake, and South Thompson (Pritchard). All facilities are now open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday, and closed Sunday and Monday.

Summer hours will come back into effect on April 1 and be in place until Sept. 30.

For a full schedule of the hours of operation for all of the TNRD’s solid waste and recycling facilities, please go to tnrd.ca.

For residents of the regional district, eco-depots are a more convenient way to manage their solid waste. A one-stop drop for most waste and recyclable materials, the facility makes it easy for residents to separate recyclables and reusable materials from the waste stream before disposing of the residual in large bins destined for the landfill.

Eco-depots are equipped with scales, which are part of a new weight-based user strategy that is more accurate and equitable than the volume-based system that was previously employed at TNRD waste disposal and recycling facilities.

 

Tipping fees will now be based on a $60-per-tonne disposal rate with a minimum charge set at $1. The new rate system breaks down to six cents per kilogram.
