Province has a Friday surprise for Metro Van: Turns down bylaw on garbage-shipping ban, announces review

October 21st, 2014 · 2 Comments

Bad news always comes on Fridays in the media world, so there it was on Friday last week, the long-awaited decision from Victoria on whether to approve Metro Vancouver’s new bylaw 280. That was a measure designed to stop garbage trucks from taking waste out of the region to get it buried at cheaper landfills elsewhere.

There will be more fallout from this, I’m sure. In the meantime, waste haulers and companies wanting to build new-style recycling facilities are delighted, Metro Vancouver politicians are livid.
