The new Fernie Transfer Station is now open at its new location on Highway 3.

The new facility at 6000 Highway 3 includes a full yellow bin recycling area containing bins for wood waste, metals, and yard waste, areas for auto batteries, propane tanks and tires and a new Reuse Centre.

The Reuse Centre accepts most household items, provided they are in good working condition. It’s free to drop items off and free to pick them up and it is the only transfer station in the area that is open Sundays.
