Apex Mountain Waste Transfer Station
The Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen has taken over the operation of the garbage and recycling at the Apex Mountain Ski Resort. Over Christmas and New Years, temporary bins have been placed at the Transfer Station property at 220 Strayhorse Rd below the 'Barn' located the back of the main parking lot. These bins will have limited capacity and residents that have access to other options for their garbage and recycling may want to use their home curbside program.
The Apex Mountain Waste Transfer Station building is nearing completion. Opening is tentatively scheduled for the middle of January. More information on this opening will be posted on this site and sent out to property owners.
HOW TO USE TEMPORARY BINS
The garbage bins supplied must be pumped open. The pump is located at the end of the bin closest to the parking lot.
- Make sure the small finger like toggle at the bottom of the pump is facing straight up (see picture below).
- Pump to raise the lid.
- Place garbage in bin, ensure everyone is away from the lid and release the toggle to lower the lid.
