In an effort to make getting rid of asbestos a little easier for those renovating their homes, the Town has announced lower landfill fees, starting April 15.
WorkSafeBC requires that any demolition and renovation projects go through an assessment process to check for hazards to ensure they are safely removed.
To support those following WorkSafe regulation, properly bagged and manifested asbestos will be free at the Oliver and Campbell Mountain Landfills.
Users will also see a reduction in fees for assessed demolition materials at the Okanagan Falls Landfill from $200/tonne to $125/tonne.
Haulers of asbestos must register in advance to set up an appointment at the Oliver and Campbell Mountain Landfills.
