North Westside hosts hazardous waste round-ip

North Westside Road residents will have an opportunity to dispose of unwanted household hazardous waste products.

From 8 a.m. to noon on Aug. 20, residents can dispose of any hazardous waste materials from around their homes at the North Westside Road transfer station.

“Household paint and aerosol paint, flammable liquids and aerosols, domestic pesticides with the poison symbol and PCP number, gasoline (in an approved ULC container), household and auto batteries and electronics and computer equipment will be collected at this special opportunity,” said Bruce Smith, with the Regional District of Central Okanagan. “No propane tanks, chemicals or commercial waste products will be accepted.”

Follow the signs to the transfer station which is located along the Sugarloaf Mountain/Whiteman Creek Forest Service Road approximately 3.2-kilometers past the fire hall on Udell Road in Killiney Beach.
