Solid Waste & Recycling


Increased recycling opportunities and diversion initiatives help extend landfill life in a cost-effective manner.

The TNRD Solid Waste service area comprises all electoral areas within the political boundaries of the TNRD. Refuse originating outside of this boundary area depicted above will have to be disposed of in the respective regional district where the refuse originates.

Environmental Health Services manages the TNRD Solid Waste and Recycling programs throughout the TNRD with the exception of the City of Kamloops and Barnhartvale landfills, which are operated by the City of Kamloops.


Effective immediately, all regularly accepted waste and recyclables (including yard waste) will once again be allowed at TNRD landfills, Eco-depots, and transfer stations.

For the health and safety of staff and visitors related to COVID-19, the TNRD has implemented physical distancing protocols at its sites. This includes increased staffing levels to help ensure that physical distancing requirements are followed, and fewer people will be allowed access to the site at one time.

We thank you for your patience and cooperation as you may be required to wait in line to access the site.

To help reduce wait times and keep staff and the public safe, please adhere to the following procedures:

  • Only visit disposal facilities when necessary
  • Follow all directions of site attendants
  • Ensure materials are pre-sorted and easy to unload
  • Bring full loads to avoid multiple trips
  • Minimize your time on site
