Construction begins Monday to upgrade the entrance to the Greater Vernon Recycling and Disposal Facility.
Improvements include: constructing a third lane, relocating the entrance gate, enhancing security, installing a lock block wall at the yard waste drop-off area and connecting the yard hydrants to a water source.
It should take about three months to complete.
Yard waste customers will have to go through the weigh scale to a temporary drop off location and can bypass the scale on their way out.
The RDNO asks customers to exercise caution while travelling through the site as they are sharing the roads with large commercial vehicles.
“These upgrades have been anticipated for a few years, with the planning and engineering undergoing a number of changes to get them just right”, stated Project Manager Nicole Kohnert, Regional Engineering Services Manager. “We hope customers will find the changes improve convenience, safety and ease of use at the site”.
