However, the refuse and disposal facility at the Clearwater landfill will continue to operate until has trailers are in place to start hauling recycling and refuse from the eco-depot.

“Optimistically, we are looking at Jan. 1 to have trailers in place,” says TNRD manager of Environmental Health Services Don May.
