Upgrades to the North Peace Regional Landfill


The PRRD says the system was constructed to better meet B.C. Landfill Gas Management Regulation, established by the province in their on-going effort of reducing greenhouse emissions (i.e. methane) from municipal solid waste landfills.

“During commissioning, flaring equipment will be activated as an integral component of the gas management system,” a press release from the PRRD reads. “Options for gas utilization, such as generating power or pipelining either raw or refined landfill gas to a natural utility, are being considered [sic].”

Anyone with questions or concerns about the new operation of the facility is encouraged to contact the PRRD at 1 800 670 7773 or email [email protected]
