Eco-Depot update

 | May 5, 2013

tree_recycle Visiting the Eco-Depots in Clearwater and Louis Creek has just become a lot more convenient — they now accept payment with debit card, credit card or eco-cards.

Summer hours are in affect with both Eco-Depots open Tuesday to Sunday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Eco-Depots have also installed weigh scales and users will now be charged according to weight rather than volume. The TNRD believes this is a more accurate and equitable system. Disposal fees will continue to be based on the $60-per-tonne rate with a minimum fee of $1. Recycling of certain materials is available at no cost.

The new weight based system will affect the traffic flow in both Eco-Depots and motorists should be aware to look for new signage.
