North Westside Transfer Station hours:
As residents return home after the White Rock Lake Wildfire, the North Westside Road transfer station will be open daily from 8 a.m. until noon starting Saturday, September 4 until the end of the month.
The North Westside transfer station is located along the Sugarloaf Forest Service Road off Westside Road approximately 3.2 kms past Udell Road in Killiney Beach.
The extended hours are designed to give residents additional access to the facility and support clean up and recovery work. To accommodate the extra material at the site, the transfer station will be closed each afternoon to deal with the influx of waste and make space for the following day. The facility will return to normal operating hours October 1st.
The North Westside Transfer Station is only open to RDCO residents, property owners and tenants. For residents outside the Regional District of Central Okanagan please contact your local government.
There is no limit on the volume of bagged household waste impacted households can dispose at this time. The North Westside Rd Transfer Station is set up to receive bagged waste and non-burnt yard waste. The transfer station cannot take building materials, furniture, or large appliances, such as fridges and freezers. Hazardous material and demolition waste such as wood from damaged structures or burnt vehicles cannot be accepted. Visit rdco.com/recycle for more waste disposal options.
