Update on Clearwater Landfill

Thompson-Nicola Regional District is progressively closing the Clearwater Landfill

Thompson-Nicola Regional District is progressively closing the Clearwater Landfill.

According to information from TNRD and District of Clearwater, beginning on Dec. 1, household garbage, recycling and small amounts of demolition will be collected in bins and transported to the Heffley Creek Landfill. As of this date no waste will be buried at the Clearwater Landfill.

Previously accepted materials such as yard waste, scrap metal, tires, batteries and waste oil will continue to be accepted at this site.

For large loads of commercial waste, including demolition and construction waste, please contact the TNRD in advance as space is limited.

The Clearwater Landfill will close completely upon the opening of the Clearwater Eco-Depot.

Residents can expect this new facility to open for business in the early spring of 2013.

The eco-depot will offer a “one stop drop” that will allow users to separate a wide range of recyclable and reusable materials from the waste stream and pay only for what remains as garbage. Additionally, loads of material will be tracked and charged based on weight determined by onsite scales.


Once this service transitions to the Clearwater Eco-Depot, TNRD staff will close the Clearwater Landfill entirely and begin the task of reclaiming the area. Ongoing supervision and maintenance of the closed landfill will be performed for a minimum post closure period of 25 years.
