A sure sign of spring is new operating hours at North Okanagan landfills.
As of Friday, spring/summer hours return to both the Greater Vernon and Armstrong-Spallumcheen landfills.
“Summer hours will be in effect until the end of October,” said Dale Danallanko, with the Regional District of North Okanagan.
At the Greater Vernon site, the hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday and 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
They are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday and 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Armstrong-Spallumcheen facility.
Summer hours return to the Kingfisher transfer station April 3.
At that time, the hours at the Kingfisher site will be 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday and Sunday until Oct. 31.
The hours at the Cherryville and Lumby facilities remain unchanged.
