Restrictions

The Okanagan Falls Sanitary Landfill specializes in Demolition and Construction Waste recycling.

The Okanagan Falls Landfill no longer accepts regular household or business garbage or residential recycling. Residents and businesses should take garbage containing food waste or fruit to the Campbell Mountain Sanitary Landfill. Check in Fees and Charges above for what materials can be accepted.

Before you go

  • Remember to tarp all loads or fees will be doubled to a minimum of $10.00.
  • You can save a lot of money if your loads contain only seperated materials. Check Fees and Charges for items that can be recycled and what items are not allowed in the landfill.
  • The Okanagan Falls Landfill cannot accept food waste or bagged household garbage. These materials should go to the Campbell Mountain Landfill.

Recycling & Composting

Save money and reduce the amount of garbage you generate by separating recyclable or compostable materials from garbage. Review Bylaws above to see what materials can be accepted.

There is a free residential recycling depot at the entrance of the landfill for cardboard. Flatten all cardboard, keep loose and do not bundle.

Some types of hazardous or controlled waste are approved for disposal at the landfill but require special handling and disposal techniques to avoid creating health hazards, nuisances, or environmental pollution. Some waste, including radioactive, biomedical, asbestos, automobiles, slaughterhouse, and other waste is prohibited from disposal at the landfill.
