Proper Disposal of Sandbags After Flooding

As the risk of flooding has reduced throughout the region, and more residents return to their homes, the Regional District Okanagan-Similkameen Emergency Operations Centre (RDOS EOC) is scaling back operations.  The EOC will close to the public effective Friday, June 15, 2018 at 4:30 pm.


The RDOS EOC is recommending property owners keep sandbags in place until the threat of flooding has passed.  If property owners deem the risk is low enough, they can drop off sandbags at their local landfill.  The Keremeos Landfill is located off the Keremeos Bypass at El Rancho Road and is open Wednesdays from Noon to 4 PM and Sundays from 10 AM to 4 PM.  A map to the Keremeos Landfill can be found by clicking on the link below:
