An open house on May 30 will show residents what Radium Hot Spring’s new transfer station is all about.

The Regional District of East Kootenay (RDEK) is hosting the event next Tuesday at Radium Hot Springs Centre on Stanley Street from 5 to 7 p.m.

“The open house will provide residents with an opportunity to see the proposed site layout, learn more about the expanded services that will be available at the site and ask questions of staff,” said RDEK Environmental Services Manager Kevin Paterson.

The transfer station will provide a new, convenient option for Radium and Area G residents to dispose of their waste and access a wide range of new recycling opportunities, including: a full Recycle BC depot; used oil recycling; electronics recycling; recycling of white goods, propane tanks and batteries; and dedicated bins for the drop-off of green waste, metals, and wood waste.

The facility will be located within the Village of Radium Hot Springs on property adjacent to the Village’s Wastewater Treatment Plant across from the Canfor log yard. Construction is slated to begin later this summer, with a completion date of late 2023.

The RDEK has set up a project page where residents can access information and ongoing project updates at
