Solid Waste/Oliver Landfill

Solid Waste

The Town of Oliver, in cooperation with the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen, participates in a progressive solid waste management system. There is a strong emphasis on user pay, waste reduction, reuse or recycling, and for residual materials, efficient landfill operation.

The solid waste disposal service in Oliver and district is funded through a combination of landfill tipping fees and tax subsidy. The percent of funding through the tax subsidy is decreasing, as the function moves towards a user-pay philosophy. Taxes are collected from all properties in Oliver and Area C based on assessed property values of land and improvements.

Besides burying residual waste, this function also supports a community composting operation, recycling and public education on solid waste issues.

Compost operations at Oliver Landfill

All loads delivered to the Oliver Landfill must be covered by a tarp, canopy or container to confine the load to the vehicle. All uncovered loads will be charged a double tipping fee
