Metro Vancouver only recognizes the outlying parts of "metro" when it's convenient. When it comes to services to those of us south of the Fraser, they have no comment, but when it comes to dumping their problems, it's "go east and dump it there."
Why does the Fraser Valley have to deal with the garbage? If the composting process is so clean and odourless, then why can't a site be found north of the Fraser River?
I find it difficult to appreciate that the company that plans on building a composting facility can truly sit there and say there will be no smell, and that it will be using only "yard waste."
There is no more "yard waste" as we know it, as the Township of Langley (and other municipalities) now incorporates "kitchen waste" (chicken bones and skin, beef/pork/lamb bones, egg shells, coffee grounds, tea bags, non-waxed pizza boxes, food-soiled paper towel, etc.) with its "yard waste," so Mr. Temreck of Glenval Organics needs to revisit his plan, as kitchen waste is now a part of yard waste.
We've had our share of mushroom farm odours, so what is it that makes this kind of compost clean and odour-free?
