It's time to enclose the 'Delta Stink'?

Image result for pics of enviro-smart ladnerA pair of senior Delta civic staff members are travelling to Ottawa this week to see if they can figure out how to do things right. When it comes to odour problems which East Ladner is now it time to fully enclose the facility?

The pair are going to tour the Green for Life and Orga World composting facilities in Ottawa. The Green For Life facility operates in the same manner as is being proposed for the Enviro-Smart facility in East Ladner.Related image

They are interested to see the facility in order to help determine whether a similar facility could address the odour problems being experienced in East Ladner.  The Orga World facility is a fully enclosed operation which processes 150,000 tonnes of organic waste a year, the scale being proposed for Enviro-Smart.

The odour has been the complaint of hundreds of air quality complaints for the past couple of years, prompting Metro Vancouver to begin discussions with the company last summer about an air quality management permit.Related image
