The Proposed Project

Tervita Corporation is proposing the expansion of its Silverberry Secure Landfill, an existing facility located approximately 50 kilometres north of Fort St. John, British Columbia. As proposed, the Silverberry Landfill Capacity Expansion Project would increase the lifespan of the landfill by approximately 30 years as well as increase its total capacity by 6,000,000 tonnes. Products accepted for disposal at the landfill are solid non-hazardous and select solid hazardous wastes (oilfield, forestry and industrial wastes).
