Fire destroys Thorsen Creek’s recycling attendant trailer

On the night of January 13th, fire broke out in the Recycling Attendant’s office trailer at the Thorsen Creek Landfill.

On the night of January 13th, fire broke out in the Recycling Attendant’s office trailer at the Thorsen Creek Landfill. Work crews arrived the following morning to find the office reduced to a burned out hulk of melted aluminum.

The cause of the fire is suspected to be electrical in nature. CCRD would like to thank the RCMP, B.C. Hydro, Gilles Dionne (Bella Coola Volunteer Fire Dept.) and Ron Gordon (Hagensborg Volunteer Fire Dept.) for attending.

The CCRD is moving forward with reconfiguration of the Landfill Site to enhance recycling opportunities and levels of convenience to the public. Initiatives are underway to expand on the success of the MMBC recycling program and we will be adding to the list of items accepted for recycling.

The public is reminded that cardboard and batteries are among the list of items no longer allowed to be mixed in with household garbage. These must be taken to the Recycling Depot at the entrance of the landfill.
