An administrative and maintenance building is located near the scale house at the main entrance to the site.
Situated at the entrance to the site the scalehouse serves as the control point for all vehicles arriving at the site.
The Recycling Facility (commonly referred to as a MRF – Materials Recovery Facility) employs 22 people.
For the year 2012:
Waste disposal at the landfill is enhanced by compacting the incoming waste into bales inside a large baler building.
Access to the baler facility for homeowners and small commercial vehicles is provided at a designated area of the baler building.
As part of the Commission’s waste diversion program, wood waste delivered to the site is stored in a designated area.
As part of the Commission’s waste diversion program white goods and scrap metal delivered to the site are stockpiled for recycling.
Construction and Demolition Waste (C & D) arriving at the site is directed to a designated disposal area.
At the landfill area bales of waste that are transported from the baler building are stacked in cells as part of final disposal.
Leachate is the liquid waste formed when rain and snow melt drain through the waste deposits of landfills. At the Fredericton site the leachate is collected and piped to a biological treatment lagoon.
A cell designed for the disposal of ash generated by the University of New Brunswick’s physical
plant was constructed in late fall of 2001.
UNB reimburses the FRSWC for capital and operational costs associated with the ash cell. In 2012, a total of 1,602 metric tonnes of ash were received
Surface water from around the site is collected and treated in the sediment pond.
The pond allows for clay and other materials to settle on the bottom and then the clean water is released into the environment.
