Demolishing, Renovating or Altering a Structure:

Before Demolishing, Renovating or Altering a Structure Follow 4 Steps

Step 1:  Check with your local Municipal or Regional District Building Department                                                                                                                                                                           

  • If an Agency Agreement is required to sign the associated forms?
  • If a Demolition Permit or a Building Permit is required?

Step 2:  Obtain a Hazardous Assessment Report from a Qualified Professional 

  • If hazardous materials are identified – remove and dispose of safely
  • Remove all loose or bagged garbage, furnishings, appliances, mattresses
  • Obtain a Clearance letter from a Qualified Professional (if hazardous materials are identified and removed)

Step 3:  Before Demolition, but after all hazardous materials have been removed, submit the free RDOS Landfill Waste Disposal Application for review and approval

  • Complete the RDOS Landfill Waste Disposal Application (WDA) and submit for review along with the applicable documents. If approved, the finalized and signed WDA will be returned to the applicant. 

Step 4:  Before Delivery to an RDOS Administered Landfill Site

  •  With each load the hauler brings to the Landfill, supply the completed Waste Disposal Application (WDA) that has been approved by the RDOS for the specified materials. Once signed by the RDOS, the WDA allows assessed co-mingled demolition/renovation materials to be accepted at the Campbell Mountain, Oliver and Okanagan Falls Landfill Sites.
  • Note: The Okanagan Falls Landfill - DRC Sorting Site offers significantly lower tipping fees for co-mingled assessed demolition/renovation materials with an Approved RDOS WDA. There are different tipping fees applied for materials generated within the Okanagan Falls Landfill Service Area and outside.
