The Environmental Resource Management Service operates the landfill, oversees solid waste planning, explores opportunities for resource recovery and identifies best practices to further reduce waste, increase recycling and mitigate climate change. The CRD seeks the best use for waste resources through initiatives such as methane gas capture and the diversion of kitchen scraps from the landfill.

Owned and operated by the CRD, Hartland Landfill is a multi-purpose site which, in additional to landfill services for general refuse and controlled waste, provides drop off for recycling, organics and household hazardous waste.

Desired Outcome

Minimize waste disposal and maximize waste diversion
