Residual Materials Management Planning
All municipalities under the jurisdiction of this Policy MUST have a residual materials management plan in effect (within a period of no more than 2 years from implementation of any legislative provision). Once the plan is put in force it binds the municipality to the terms.
Any municipal waste management plan must consider the following:
1. Reclamation of Municipal and Industrial Sludge:
It is essential to discern the properties, quality, and quantity of the sludge, to evaluate the possibility of recovery where environmentally beneficial. NO SLUGE MAY BE LANDFILLED UNTIL IT HAS BEEN PROVEN THAT RECOVERY IS NOT A VIABLE OPTION.
2. Any project that involves operation or an increase in capacity of an incinerator must be authorized, and will receive this only if it can be proven that incineration is not in conflict with recovery targets. As well, strict standards for gas and particle emission will be implemented.
3. New regulations will be enacted concerning landfill standards. Watertight landfill cells will be targeted, as well as leachate collection, water treatment systems to protect ground and surface water, quality of receiving environments, and safe collection and release of burning biogas.
4. Rigid standards for safety and environmental protection will be enacted for dry material disposal sites.
5. All disposal procedures must be monitored and accountability for meeting standards for emissions, water contamination, and the general health of the population and the environment will be enforced at all levels.
The BioCRUDE Advantage:
BioCRUDE Technologies can be an important part of these expanded services. Our technological advances in composting and production of biogas are currently at a level superior to other companies in the field. Remember, being current in process advances is one of the stipulations of the Provincial Government’s Policy. Our mandate is not to “keep up with the Jones’ “, we ARE the Jones’.
