Crawford Bay Transfer Station closed until mid-July - Boswell Transfer Station hours extended

Nelson, BC: The Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) Crawford Bay Transfer Station, located at 16798 Crawford Creek Road, will be closed through the month of June and possibly until mid-July. Recent weather events, and flooding of Preacher Creek washed out portions of Crawford Creek Road, leaving the transfer station inaccessible. The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure will handle the road repair work over the next month. The Crawford Bay Transfer Station will reopen as soon as possible once the site is accessible, please check the RDCK website for updates.

Residents are being asked to take their waste and recycling to the Boswell Transfer Station. Extended hours are now in place to better serve the community during the closure of the Crawford Bay Transfer Station. Normally open just Wednesday and Saturday, Boswell Transfer Station will now be open Sunday as well. Located at 12575 Hepher Road, extended hours of operation will be 9:00 am – 3:00 pm, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. More details on the Boswell Transfer Station can be found here.
