Disposal Fees are Back in Place for Household Garbage

Kamloops, BC – May 28, 2020 – Effective immediately, disposal fees will be reinstated for all garbage dropped off at TNRD-operated waste facilities.

The fees for bagged household garbage were temporarily ceased as a safety measure to protect workers and the public during the COVID-19 pandemic. The TNRD’s operations contractor has implemented new safe work procedures at all sites, allowing normal fee collection to resume. Over $30,000 in disposal fees have been waived since mid-March.

All TNRD-operated waste facilities are working under normal hours of operations, and all disposal restrictions related to the pandemic have been lifted.

Residents are reminded to plan trips to their local Eco-Depot or transfer station in the same manner as an outing to a grocery or hardware store:

  • Expect to wait in line, as the number of customers on site is restricted for safe-distancing measures.
  • Practice physical distancing at a times.
  • Be patient and kind to the workers. They are providing an important essential service and deserve to be treated with courtesy and respect.
