Waste Matters

The District of Invermere's Refuse Collection and Recycling Program is dedicated to "Guarding Against Waste". Weekly garbage collection is provided to single family homes and the collection of recycling is provided once every two weeks. Those residents south of 13th Street receive curbside pickup on Tuesday and those residents north of 13th Street receive curbside pickup on Wednesday.

For waste other than household, it must be taken to the Windermere Landfill site located at 1875 Windermere Loop Road. You can call the landfill at 250-342-0381. The Regional District of East Kootenay operates the landfill.

Our user pay approach encourages residents to control the amount of garbage they produce. Basic Service limits residents to put two (2) standard size containers per week and unlimited volumes of recyclable materials from each household once every two weeks. Recyclable materials must be placed in a standard clear or transparent bag of maximum (95) liters, and weighing no more than 25 kg each. An Extended Service, utilizing client purchased garbage tags from Municipal Hall at $1.00 each, exists for clients who have needs beyond 2 containers.

Recycling and Transfer Station

If unable to have your garbage and recycle out for colletion, residents are encouraged to take advantage of the Recycling Centre located next to the Public Works yard in Athalmer. Please remember though that the garbage bins located at the Centre are for household waste only. By practicing the 3Rs -- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle -- we can conserve resources, extend the life of our landfill, and save money.
