The Malakwa Transfer Station will be open Saturday, Jan. 4 as normal.
The Columbia Shuswap Regional District reports that the road to the transfer station has now been plowed for vehicle access. That means it will be open as regularly scheduled on Saturday, Jan. 4 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and again on Sunday, Jan. 5, same hours.
The CSRD states that it appreciates residents’ patience during the unforeseen temporary closure.
On Jan. 2, the CSRD had announced that due to extreme levels of snow blocking the road, the transfer station would be closed until further notice, although attempts would be made to have it open by Jan. 4.
The station, located at 3591 McLean-Sawmill Rd., was scheduled to open on Jan. 2 but didn’t.
