There are yellow recycling bins at the Landfill that take all your paper, cardboard, tin/aluminum cans, grocery bags and household plastics #1-#6 (except Styrofoam). In addition, there are dedicated GLASS ONLY bins for your container glass (containers that hold your food or beverages, excluding dishes).

There are also areas for scrap metal, clean wood waste, yard waste, auto batteries and propane tanks. 

About Tires:

There is an area at the Transfer Station for tires; however, they are subject to a tipping fee and we strongly encourage residents to take their tires elsewhere.  We have a tipping fee on tires because it costs us to handle and transport them.  When you pay an eco fee on tires, it goes to Tire Stewardship BC, a Provincial non-profit society established to ensure the collection and recycling of tires. The RDEK does not get any funding from that program; however, you can take 4 tires at a time (off rim) FREE OF CHARGE to the following businesses:

  • Canadian Tire Invermere
  • Walkers Repair Centre
  • K5 Mechanical
  • OK Tire Store


There is also a Reuse Centre at the Columbia Valley Landfill, which accepts household items in good working condition.  It's free to drop items off, and free to pick items up at the Reuse Centre.  Some examples of things that can be taken to the Reuse Centre include:

  • Chairs
  • Furniture
  • Books/Toys
  • Light fixtures
  • Pictures
  • Small dishes

Items that CANNOT be accepted in the Reuse Centre include: large appliances, scrap metal, wood, clothing, automotive parts and mattresses.

Televisions should be taken to the Invermere Bottle Depot for recycling.
