North Westside and Traders Cove Transfer Station changes
Due to the Evacuation Order affecting Westshore Estates, the North Westside Road transfer station along Sugar Loaf Forest Service Road is closed until further notice.
Customers that would normally use that solid waste and recycling disposal facility are directed to use the Traders Cove transfer station at the intersection of Bear Lake Main and Westside Road.
It is open Wednesday from 6:30 – 11:30 a.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
With the increased demand and anticipated use of this facility, the Regional District and its contractor asks all customers to be patient and please pre-sort materials before arriving in order to speed service and reduce congestion.
Residents can take up to two bags of garbage per week to this transfer station. It also accepts yard waste and recyclables sorted into the following categories:
- Paper & Cardboard (flattened)
- Containers (plastic, tin, aluminum, aerosol cans, milk cartons, paper cups, etc.)
- Plastic Bags and overwrap
- Other Flexible Plastic Packaging
- White Styrofoam
- Coloured Styrofoam
Please visit the Traders Cove transfer station website (rdco.com – Disposal Locations) for more information on materials that are accepted.
