Effective immediately, Spring, summer and fall Landfill Operating Hours have been changed to reduce bear access to our landfill. The landfill will now be open:
Wednesdays: 12:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Saturdays: 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM
- Please be aware that there will be a gatekeeper on duty to ensure that the gate is closed when the landfill is not being used. We are taking these measures to ensure that garbage bears do not have access to the landfill. The landfill will be locked shut at all other times to keep the bears out.
- When the landfill is closed, please deposit your garbage and recycling in the bins located at the old grocery store site at Xit’olacw Road and Black Bear Road
Bears are attracted to fruit trees that are not harvested. If you have any fruit trees on your property that are not picked, or if you know of any fruit trees in the community that are not picked and that attract problem bears, please advise the Lands and Resource Department so that we can investigate into having the tree removed.
