Waste Hauler Disposal Facilities
The City provides two Waste Hauler Disposal Stations located at the Wastewater Treatment Plant and at the Landfill.
Marquis Waste Hauler Disposal Station
The Waste Hauler Disposal Station at the Wastewater Treatment Plant in the Silverwood Heights neighbourhood is scheduled to be relocated to the Marquis Industrial area in early 2019.
Moving the facility to Marquis Industrial will redirect hauling trucks away from the current residential area to an area designed for this kind of traffic. There will be no evident smell outside the facility and no health risk to the public. In fact, the newly relocated station will be connected to an existing multi-million-dollar odour control facility that is specifically designed to contain odours.
The new facility will be 1,400 ft. (or 4 football fields) from the Silverwood Golf Course and 2,100 ft. (about 6 football fields) from the closest residence. This is significantly further away from residential lots than its current location.
This project is currently scheduled to break ground in the Fall of 2017 with a completion date of early 2019.
Landfill Waste Hauler Disposal Facility
A new Waste Hauler Disposal Facility was opened at the Landfill in May 2016 to reduce waste hauler truck traffic at the disposal station in the Silverwood Heights residential area.
This facility accept loads that have a high percentage of grit. In this facility, the liquid is separated and pumped back to Wastewater Treatment Plant for treatment. The grit is dried and is used as landfill cover.
The Landfill Waste Hauler Disposal Facility is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
