You can now dispose of smoke and carbon monoxide alarms at many of the Regional District of East Kootenay’s transfer stations.
Drop-off locations include Invermere, Cranbrook, Kimberley, Elkford, Fernie, and Sparwood transfer stations.
“We are constantly looking for ways to expand the variety of items that our residents are able to recycle, and our partnership with Product Care to offer this new option is one that we believe will be of great benefit to those in our region,” said RDEK General Manager of Engineering and Environmental Services, Kevin Paterson.
RDEK officials said their transfer stations will accept a number of new items, including smoke alarms, carbon monoxide (CO) alarms, and combination smoke/CO alarms.
You can also drop off up to 40 smoke or CO alarms at once.
However, thermostats, alarm keypads, physically damaged smoke alarms, building-wide smoke/CO detector units, and smoke detectors without an alarm function will not be accepted.
