Bear Spray Leaves Skimikin Transfer Station Closed Until Friday

The CSRD says that the Skimikin Transfer Station outside Salmon Arm will likely re-open by the end of the week.

That site was closed on Tuesday, following the puncture of a discarded can of bear-spray that caused a chemical odour.

The Salmon Arm landfill is listed as an alternative option.

The Regional District says that the expectation is for that site to re-open by Friday.
