North Peace Regional Landfill – Front Entrance Redesign

To those who use the North Peace Regional Landfill, located just outside of Fort St. John, you might have noticed construction on the south side of the site over the last two years.  During this time, construction of a new front entrance was happening.  Construction included a double scale system for in bound and out bound traffic.  The aim of this was to reduce wait times for customers.  Second, construction included a transfer station area for wood, metal, tires, and residential garbage.  The aim was to reduce residential traffic from going to the active face.  This would make the site safer.  Third, construction included an area for a share shed and recycling area.  This area will be operation in the next coming weeks.  Stay tuned for more information on what will be accepted.  Forth, construction included a compost pad for composting yard and garden waste and wood chips.  Composting will commence later this year.    

Today the new front entrance becomes operational!  Below is a picture of the new layout.
