Contrary to previous information released in newspaper and radio ads, the depot will no longer be changing locations.
The Shuswap Trail Alliance has been retained by the Sicamous-to-Armstrong Rail Corridor Governance Advisory Committee to administer the day-to-day operations as the project moves into the design and planning stages.
The CSRD Recycling Depot in Sicamous will be combined with the services available at the Sicamous Bottle Depot beginning July 2, 2019.
