Free Disposal Days are coming up soon in the TNRD.
Residents may bring one free load per household to their local eco-depot or transfer station on event day. A load is defined as a maximum of one eight-foot pickup truck box or one eight-foot trailer.
Residents can save money on materials normally charged disposal fees for such things as cooling appliances, tires on rims, mattresses, furniture, demolition/construction waste, wood waste, roofing shingles and household garbage.
The free load on Free Disposal Day applies to residential customers only. Regular disposal fees apply for all business/commercial loads.
Hazardous Waste Roundups will also be held this spring:
• Saturday, April 22, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. in Cache Creek at Campbell Hill Drive West, on the way to the Cache Creek transfer station.
• Saturday, May 6, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. in Merritt at the Merritt Civic Centre parking lot.
• Saturday, June 10, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. in Kamloops at the Mission Flats landfill.
The roundups give residents a chance to safely and properly dispose of materials that are toxic, corrosive, reactive or ignitable. Containers may be unlabeled and substances unknown.
Examples include adhesives, paint thinners, chemicals, cleaners, mercury, antifreeze, herbicides, pesticides, paint, oils and gasoline. The event is for residential waste only; business and commercial hazardous waste won’t be accepted.
