Landfill rules changing re building materials

Effective September 19, the Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) is introducing new requirements for testing and disposing of materials containing asbestos.

[The Local reported details on this coming change in June: see here.]

“Before someone begins a renovation or demolition project, they should contact a qualified company that deals with asbestos to help determine what materials require testing and to conduct the testing” says Robyn Cooper, Manager, Solid Waste Services.

Materials testing positive for asbestos may be disposed of at the Sechelt Landfill only, and must follow strict bagging, sealing and labelling procedures.

On Sept. 7 from 1-4pm., the SCRD will be hosting an information session at Raven’s Cry Theatre in Sechelt.
