"Managing our garbage means putting less into landfills – and our environment – by reducing, reusing and recycling," says Jeff Rahn the Manager of Solid Waste Services for the Peace River Regional District. "When we manage our waste in a way that is sustainable it means that we are not leaving a mess for future generations to clean up."
The facilty is now full service with attendants, controlled access and specific operation hours. It will accept bagged household waste, bulky waste, metals, wood and recyclables.
The facility will be open on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from noon to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. It is closed Sunday, Monday and Thursday.
Five other stations opened on November 2, including Kelly Lake, Tomslake, Rose Prairie, Wonowon and Pink Mountain. In total, 16 transfer stations will be opened over the next three years in the Peace River Regional District.
