I talked to the TNRD rep. who was issuing the resident's cards at Lac Le Jeune and I learned the following things.
1. The new transfer station hours will begin January 1. They will be 9-12 on Wednesdays and 2-5 on Sundays. I assume the first day will be Sunday January 3rd. (If you are at the transfer station before then please check with Gord to be sure.)
2. The TNRD knows that Dec. 23 was not a good day to issue the identity cards and our new punch cards. There will be another opportunity to pick them up at the transfer station sometime in January. The date has not been decided.
3. If you cannot pick up your card at the transfer station please call Adriana Mailloux at the TNRD office at 1-877-377-8673 or 250-377-7199, to make other arrangements.
4. If you have unused eco punch cards.-(cards with no punches used)- you can take them to the TNRD in Kamloops for a refund.
5. Under the new system, Lac Le Jeune transfer station will only take household garbage and recyclables. Items such as mattresses, large furniture, appliances and construction waste will have to be taken to Logan Lake. You can use your existing purchased punch card to dispose of these items.
I'll let you know when the TNRD will be out at the transfer station again to issue our new punch cards.
Happy New Year,

A new report from Elna Strand on the transfer station:

This letter outlines the process for obtaining a new Eco-Card. From what I understand, the existing Eco-Cards that you purchased are no longer valid. With this window of opportunity to pick up a card falling 2 days before Christmas, my guess is TNRD will be receiving a lot of phone calls about "delivery options"!

Subject: Lac Le Jeune Eco-Cards and ID Tags
The Thompson-Nicola Regional District (TNRD) is pleased to introduce area specific Eco-Cards and ID Tags for Lac Le Jeune residents. The Eco-Card allows you to dispose of your household waste while you can still recycle as much as you want for free. Since the introduction of blue bag recycling at the Lac Le Jeune transfer station, the amount of waste has decreased significantly, and the TNRD would like to congratulate you on your efforts.
Each Lac Le Jeune household will be provided with an Eco-Card with 104 punches for 2010 (allows for disposal of 2 bags per week) and is covered under the new Electoral Area “J” service. An ID card will also be provided to identify you as a legitimate user of the site. During Eco-Card/ID tag distribution, residents are asked to bring a piece of addressed mail for registration. The TNRD is aware that not all Lac Le Jeune residents receive mail at their Lac Le Jeune address so please bring information of some type so you can be registered as a rightful site user.
Residents are invited to register and pick up their Eco-Cards and ID Tags this Wednesday December 23rd between 9am-5pm. If you are unable to pick up your Eco-Card and ID Tag during this time please call the TNRD as soon as possible for information. Seasonal residents who are out of the area during scheduled distribution can contact the TNRD for delivery options.
We look forward to working on this program with you and your community and welcome your feedback. For additional information on this program please feel free to contact Adriana Mailloux at the TNRD office at 1-877-377-8673 (toll free) or direct at (250) 377-7199.
