Landfills / Controlled Waste

 

Controlled Waste

Controlled wastes are materials that require special handling and disposal techniques to avoid creating health hazards, nuisances or environmental pollution. Some controlled wastes (asbestos, contaminated soils) require pre-approval and a Regional District permit prior to delivery and disposal.
 
If you have any questions about disposal of controlled waste please contact the Foothills Blvd Regional Landfill at 250-962-8972.
