Residents in Balfour and Kaslo will need to travel a little farther to dispose of garbage this spring and summer as the Regional District of Central Kootenay upgrades transfer stations in the respective areas.

“These upgrades will improve service to the public and further align the RDCK with it’s Zero Waste goals,” said Tom Newell, Chair of the Central Subregion.

The upgrades are part of the 2010 Resource Recovery Plan.
