We provide explicit formulas for the quantum integrals of a semi-infinite $q$-boson system with boundary interactions. These operators and their commutativity are deduced from the Pieri formulas for a $q\to 0$ Hall-Littlewood type degeneration of the Macdonald-Koornwinder polynomials.

Key words: $q$-bosons; boundary interactions; Hall-Littlewood functions; hyperoctahedral symmetry; Pieri formulas; integrability.
