Village Dump Truck & Small Equipment Rental
It is the policy of the Village to permit Warfield residents to rent the Village’s Dump Truck and other Small Equipment (ie. Power Sweeper) on a restricted and conditional basis for the purposes of cleaning up their properties by removing unwanted materials, branches, brush or other materials.
Terms & Conditions for using the Village Dump Truck:
- The use of the truck/equipment is restricted to personal non-commercial use of Village residents.
- The use of the truck/equipment is limited to hours and days outside of the regular work week.
- Materials placed in the truck dump box must be totally within the dump box and do not protrude.
- Loading the truck must be done in such a manner, so that when the truck box is raised to dump the materials slide freely and does not ‘hang-up’ on the end gate of the dump box.
- Residents using the truck are charged a flat fee of $100.00, plus any imposed Regional District tipping fees.
- Should a resident request to have the truck dumped during the weekend the resident will be charged, in addition to the $100.00 flat fee and the tipping fees, the four (4) hour call-out rate for the employee.
- Additional fees will be levied if Village employees have to unload the truck by hand.
- Small equipment must be returned in the condition they were on delivery / pick-up. If damaged, resident will be responsible for the cost of repair and/or replacement of equipment.
To ensure that this service remains available to all residents it is important to remember that the truck needs to be unloaded quickly and easily. If the load hangs up on the end gate during dumping, it becomes necessary to unload the truck by hand. Such work is time consuming and reduces the employees’ time available to complete other Village duties.
We appreciate your assistance in ensuring that this service remains economical and efficient and can be completed in an expedient manner.

A message from the Warfield Volunteer Firefighters
The Warfield Firefighters have had a busy last few months completing various Firefighter Training courses. We had four new firefighters complete the Recruit Firefighter Training Program. With the completion of the Recruit Program, it now allows these Firefighters to respond to emergency calls.
As well, six of our senior Firefighters just completed a Live Fire training course which The Justice Institute of British Columbia instructed and evaluated. This two-day Live Fire course included both theory and practical portions, and provided training in structural firefighting tactics.
We have also trained a number of Firefighters on a Sprinkler Protection Unit (SPU). In the event of a wildland fire, the SPU, which contains specialized equipment that will be used to protect structures.
