Cover your load
Be sure to cover and secure your load to prevent any contents from escaping while you are transporting your garbage. According to the Solid Waste By-law, you can be charged $50 (no GST or PST) at the landfill gate, in addition to the tipping (disposal) fee, if your garbage is not properly secured or covered. The only exception to this is for loads of clean fill (clay).
Landfill Gas Capture Project
From November 5, 2012 until December 24, 2012, we will be drilling wells into 30-year-old garbage. We are doing this to capture and burn the landfill gas and reduce Green House Gas emissions.
While there is no way to eliminate the smell that comes from the wells, we will drill and cap one well per day. This will keep the smell to a minimum. The chemical that causes the odours, Hydrogen Sulphide, is the same chemical from when an egg goes rotten. This is not harmful to your health at the levels being released.
Once the wells have been drilled, we will install the equipment to burn off the gasses. The construction project should be completed by May 10, 2013.
