Signed purchase agreement paves way for new Ashcroft/Cache Creek Eco-Depot

Rezoning amendment for property at Boston Flats to go before TNRD board

The Thompson-Nicola Regional District (TNRD) has secured a signed purchase and sale agreement with the owner of a piece of vacant property located off Highway 97C at Boston Flats, paving the way for the construction of a new Eco-Depot serving the communities of Ashcroft and Cache Creek.

The agreement is subject to several conditions, including rezoning approval and subsequent subdivision of the property.

A rezoning amendment for a portion of the property is being brought forward for consideration at the March 28 board meeting of the TNRD. If approved, it would allow for a proposed TNRD-owned and -operated Eco-Depot.

The current recycling depot for Ashcroft and Cache Creek residents, which is located at the Cache Creek landfill site, was set up to accept recycling after the closure of the municipal recycling depots in both communities on Sept. 1, 2018.

The site was intended as a temporary location until a new Eco-Depot could be built, and it has presented users with significant challenges, such as access to the site.

The proposed new Eco-Depot will be similar to the one in 70 Mile, and will increase the range of items that can be dropped off at the site, including leftover paint, flammables, pesticides, and aerosols.
