How are landfill restrictions enforced?

General refuse is inspected when its delivered to Hartland. If a load contains excessive amounts of recyclable or compostable materials, the hauler is subject to ticketing under CRD bylaw, in addition to the cost of disposal. In some situations the hauler may not be allowed to deposit the waste and may be asked to remove the material from the site.

Do some wastes have special disposal requirements?

Due to environmental, health and safety concerns some materials require specific preparation, permits and/or appointments for acceptance at the landfill.
