Operating hours at the Grohman Narrows transfer station are being extended.
Starting June 1, it will be open 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday to Saturday. Presently it’s only open until 4 p.m.
The Regional District of Central Kootenay says it’s in response to the high volume of users at the facility.
“By providing more flexibility to facility users, the RDCK believes it will help ease the growth in traffic over recent years,” says Tom Newell, chair of the central sub-region resource recovery committee. “This change of hours should minimize wait times for customers and increase overall efficiency.”
