Background:

In October 2017, the SLRD Board of Directors approved changes to the hours of operation at the Pemberton Transfer Station following the completion of an expanded hours trial period throughout the summer. On May 15, 2017, the hours at the transfer station were expanded to offer a morning shift between 7:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. and the facility stayed open one hour later until 7:00 p.m.

Staff conducted a visitation survey during the trial period and determined that usage during the 7:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. shift was significantly lower than in the afternoon.
