Radium Transfer Station Open House Scheduled

The Regional District of East Kootenay (RDEK) will be hosting an Open House at the end of the month to share information and details on the new Radium Transfer Station.   

“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,” explains RDEK Environmental Services Manager, Kevin Paterson.

The Open House will be held Tuesday, May 30, 2023 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm at the Radium Hot Springs Centre on Stanley Street in the Village of Radium Hot Springs.
Once open, 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; areas for the recycling of white goods, propane tanks and batteries; and, dedicated bins for the drop off of green waste, metals, and wood waste. 

The Transfer Station will be located within the Village of Radium Hot Springs on property adjacent to the Village’s Wastewater Treatment Plant and across from the Canfor log yard. Construction is slated to be underway 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 engage.rdek.bc.ca/radiumtransferstation.

“The Open House will be informal, so people are welcome to drop in and come and go as they wish.  For those who are unable to make it, all of the information will be also be available on the project page and through the RDEK,” adds Paterson.
