Nakusp Landfill Improved

Nakusp Landfill Improved!

Weigh Scale Installation & Recycling Facility Project Complete

Improvements at the Nakusp Landfill will be completed later this month, including the installation of a new weigh scale and the development of a new public drop-off recycling facility, the Regional District of Central Kootenay is pleased to announce.

The project has gone well and no major issues were experienced during construction. Staff training for the scale is scheduled for Monday, October 24th, following which weight-based charges will apply at the facility. To ensure a smooth operation during the commissioning of the new works, extra attendants will be on-hand for the first few weeks of the changeover.

“We are excited about the completion of this upgrade as it will improve service to the community,” says Ann Bunka, the RDCK’s West Resource Recovery Committee Chair.  “The new scale allows for a more fair system of charging based on weight rather than volume.  As well, the improved recycling facility is better located to allow for a more efficient drop-off for residents.”

We appreciate the public’s cooperation and patience during the construction period of this project. If you have any questions please contact the RDCK at 1-800-268-7325 or check out our website at
