City Keeps Barnhartvale Landfill Open During Mission Flats Road Closure

Kamloops, B.C. - The closure for both the Mission Flats Road and landfill will remain in effect throughout the week with the exception of city and commercial collection trucks and business access located along Mission Flats Road.

Due to the ongoing closure of the Mission Flats landfill, the City has made arrangements to keep the Barnhartvale landfill open for the general public, contractors and companies to dispose of waste. The Barnhartvale landfill, located at the end of Eliza Road, will be open from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm and will return to normal days of operation once the Mission Flats landfill re-opens. Please note that this landfill accepts cash only.

The City will advise when both Mission Flats Road and landfill will be re-opening to the general public.
