Kamloops, BC – May 6, 2022 – Residents and businesses of the Thompson-Nicola Regional District (TNRD) can now access reloadable Eco-Cards for use at all TNRD solid waste facilities.
These new Eco-Cards are replacing the $10, $20, and $50 punch Eco-Card system currently in place. While the distribution of punch Eco-Cards is being phased out, the TNRD will continue to accept punch Eco-Cards and they will not have an expiry date.
“This change will result in less waste in our landfills, as the spent punch cards were not recyclable,” said Adriana Mailloux, TNRD Manager of Solid Waste and Recycling. “This also means increased program efficiency, and will lead to more flexibility for payment of disposal fees.”
New accounts come with a one-time $10 welcome credit, and multiple Eco-Cards can be issued for one account. Residents and businesses can register for their new reloadable Eco-Card with one of the following options:
- In-person at their local Eco-Depot or Transfer Station
- Online, by filling out the Sign-Up Form at tnrd.ca/ecocard
- By phone, by calling TNRD staff at 250 377-2596
If registering in person at your local Eco-Depot or Transfer Station, you will receive your reloadable Eco-Card on site. Please allow 1-2 weeks to receive your Eco-Card if registering by phone or online.
Funds can be added to a reloadable Eco-Card 24/7, either at home or on the go, using the TNRD’s customer portal website. Users can also add funds to an Eco-Card while visiting their local Eco-Depot, in-person at the TNRD Main Office, or by mail with cheque or money order to the TNRD Main Office. Once an account is created, access the customer portal by visiting app.tnrd.ca.
