Just ahead of Christmas 2020, the Hartland Landfill facility is back to regular operating hours.
The facility was closed earlier this week due to downed trees and power lines on Hartland Avenue (resulting from a snowstorm on December 21), which have now been removed, said the Capital Regional District (CRD) this morning.
Customers are reminded to use caution and expect delays due to icy road conditions and a potential increase in traffic. People requiring the disposal services at Hartland are asked to “consider holding off on your visit until road conditions improve”. The suggestion is to store excess waste or recycling materials at home.
“The CRD would like to thank residents for their understanding and patience,” it was stated in a media release today. Updates available at www.crd.bc.ca/alerts
The CRD’s landfill facility is presently built-out to accommodate contributions into the ground up to 2050. Biomass recycling into the production of energy (and other projects) are part of CRD’s efforts to extend use of the landfill for more years.
