RDOS landfills expanding hours

The Keremeos Transfer Station and the Campbell Mountain, Okanagan Falls and Oliver landfills have implemented extended summer hours as of March 1st, 2021.

The Keremeos Transfer Station is now open extended hours on Wednesdays from March until the end of November. During these months, the Keremeos Transfer Station will be open Wednesdays and Sundays from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. This is an additional two hours of operation on Wednesdays to better serve residents in the Similkameen Valley.

The Campbell Mountain Landfill in Penticton will be open seven days a week including Sundays and all statutory holidays from March until the end of November. The Campbell Mountain Landfill will be open every day from 8:30 am to 4:45 pm.

The Okanagan Falls Landfill will reopen on Saturdays. From March to November, the Okanagan Falls Landfill will be open Monday to Saturday from 10:00 am to 1:45 pm except statutory holidays when the landfill will be closed. To avoid lineups at the Campbell Mountain Landfill, the RDOS is advising residents with yard waste go to the Okanagan Falls Landfill when open. The driving time is only a few extra minutes from Penticton with almost no lineups when open.

The Oliver Landfill is now open regular hours from 10:00 am to 3:45 pm Monday to Saturday until December. The Oliver Landfill is closed Sundays and statutory holidays.
