Talking Trash at the Regional District

Prince George, B.C. – The Regional District of Fraser Fort George has produced its annual report on operations at the Foothills Landfill and you may be surprised at just how much material heads to that facility.
Ove the past year, just over 98 thousand tonnes of materials made it across the scales at the landfill.
Of that amount nearly, 73 thousand tonnes of solid waste was buried at the landfill, nearly 34 thousand tonnes from residential users. Just over 26 thousand tonnes were diverted to recycling streams or compost.
The report, which is to be submitted to the Ministry of the Environment, says the Foothills Landfill has at least 10 more years of use of Cell 1 for waste disposal.
I believe trash is also brought into this landfill from outlying areas such as Mackenzie. Any reports on this landfill seem to omit information like that for some reason. Would be interesting to know the difference in percentage of trash from outlying areas and PG.
Mackenzie has its own landfill…
The report doesn’t break down how much is coming from other areas only the weight that crossed the scales and the source such as residential commercial industrial…
That is what I was trying to get at. Everytime a report is released on the landfill people will get the idea its all from PG for lack of detail. Trash is brought in from a huge area but the regional district seems quiet on that aspect for some reason.
