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.
