We have made some major changes at our waste management facility, ie the landfill.  We have made a 40 ft X 75ft expansion to the recycle building, allowing us to now take commercial size loads of recycle materials.  It also houses our rebuilt plastic sorting and grinding area.  This will allow us to handle all 1s to 7s plastics and send them for recycling them, not land filling them. Contrary to what many think, we do not really make money on recycle materials, our real savings is in the expansion of time for the life of our landfill space, which does cost a lot of money.

We have also built a tipping area for Hydro Vac trucks, non hazardous waste, for them to dispose of their loads in our area.  This is showing to be very successful.  We have some adjustments to make in order to help in the proper management, but these are just growing pains for us to learn what works and what does not.

If you ever have a question about what you have in your load:

Always ask the scale attendant if we can take something and where it should go.  Thank you

Announcement

If you are asked to take your waste to the transfer station on site, rather then to the landfill, we ask that you please abide by the request.  There may be many reasons why, but the primary reason is for your and our staff's safety.  To many people are injured in landfills each day, including the loss of a small boy here in Alberta this past few months.  So we take this very seriously and want to let you know that if you decide to go against staff directions you could be banned from our site.  thank you, Tom.
