Temporary Service Interruptions at the Greater Vernon Recycling & Disposal Facility

Posted Friday, August 31, 2018

Residents are advised that the Recycling Drop Centre (RDC) at the Greater Vernon Recycling & Disposal Facility (GVRDF) will be out of service from Wednesday, September 5 through Friday, September 7 due to electrical work required as part of the GVRDF entrance upgrade.

“A power pole is being removed and a new underground electrical supply to the Blue Bag and Cardboard compactors is being installed.  As a result, the Recycling Drop Centre will be temporarily out of service from Wednesday to Friday”, stated Dale Danallanko, RDF Operations Manager. “We expect to re-open the Recycling Drop Centre on Saturday, September 8”.  

Residents are encouraged to make use of the Recycle BC curbside recycling programs, or visit one of the two local Recycle BC Depots in Vernon Interior Freight and Bottle Depot and Venture Training to drop off their recyclables.

“The entrance upgrade project is on schedule with an expected completion date of November 1, 2018”, stated Mike Fox, General Manager of Community Services. “The upgrades will ultimately increase the efficiency and operations at the facility as well as increase customer safety.”

The Regional District of North Okanagan would like to thank all GVRDF customers for their patience and cooperation during construction.
