The depot closed at temporarily at 9:40 a.m. on Tuesday, May 26. The Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD), which manages the Salmon Arm landfill, informed landfill users they did not have the necessary bins and recycling collection bags to operate the depot. Later that day, at 3:30 p.m., a shipment of the necessary bags was received and the depot opened as usual on May 27.

This is the second disruption in service at the landfill recycling depot this month where full bins led to a temporary shutdown of the depot.

The other CSRD recycling depot in Salmon Arm, Bill’s Bottle Depot, remained open during both closures.
