Glenmore Landfill

Owned and operated by the City of Kelowna, the Glenmore Landfill serves as the only active landfill for the Central Okanagan.

Location: 2710 - 2720 John Hindle Drive (access off of Glenmore Road North)

Open: Daily from 7:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Closed Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day

Please be advised that we are only accepting non-cash payments at the Glenmore Landfill scale house to help streamline services and reduce the chances of spreading COVID-19 to both staff and customers until further notice.

In addition, bird watching activities at the landfill have been suspended. This is in solidarity with public health efforts across British Columbia to limit gatherings in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
