More Revenue at Landfill

Central Huron | by Rick Stow  

More revenue at Mid Huron Landfill site after hours extended.

Everything seems to turn up roses for the Mid-Huron Landfill site.

The dump extended its hours for a brief period to allow for the intake of refuse and waste material spawned by the Goderich tornado.

Brian Barnim -- the Board Chair for the Mid-Huron Landfill site -- says tonnage revenues at the dump have sky-rocketed since August 21st.

Much of the Goderich material is recyclable, so valuable landfill space is not being eaten up.

Barnim says the facility strives for efficiencies wherever it can find them -- and has recently signed a deal for e-waste with Bluewater Recycling.

The Landfill Board doesn't get the same amount of money for its recycled e-waste, but spends nothing for labour to sort the product.

The Mid-Huron Landfill Site will be in good shape for years to come, as the previous municipality set aside five million dollars in reserves against the dump's eventual closure.
