Welcome to the Belkorp Environmental Services Inc (BESI) public consultation for residents of the TNRD.
In January 2010, BESI received an Environmental Certificate from the BC Environmental Assessment Office for an Extension to the Cache Creek landfill. The EAO rigorous review process examined the technical, economic and social aspects of the landfill Extension.
On November 5, 2010, BESI requested to have the Cache Creek Landfill (CCLF) Extension included as an authorized facility under section 3.6, table 3-2, of the TNRD 2008 Solid Waste Management Plan. This amendment would provide BESI with the authorization necessary to proceed with the development of the site.
The second phase of authorization for the CCLF Extension is to be dealt with by the TRND at a later date and will focus on other aspects of the landfill including tipping fees, levies, etc.
