On November 21, 2022, a formal grand opening was held for the Boston Flats Eco-Depot.
The event included an opening prayer, remarks and drumming from Chief Frank Antoine of the Bonaparte First Nation, followed by remarks from Board Chair, Barbara Roden, and from General Manager of Operations, Jamie Vieira. Afterwards, Chair Roden cut the ribbon to officially open the new Eco-Depot, and guests were given a detailed tour of the facility and property.
The new Boston Flats Eco-Depot, located at 1180 Campbell Hill Drive East, opened to the public on November 15, 2022, and it replaces the former Cache Creek Transfer Station. The new site provides significantly improved solid waste and recycling service in the area, and will serve approximately 3,600 residents including the Village of Ashcroft, Village of Cache Creek, Ashcroft Indian Band, Bonaparte Indian Band, Oregon Jack Creek Indian Band and residents of Electoral Area “I” (Blue Sky Country).
