Status report on special waste management in British Columbia Hubbard, Lanny T.

Abstract

This paper reviews the status of the special waste management program of the Province of British Columbia. Special wastes are wastes potentially hazardous to human health and/or the environment which require special management techniques. Approximately 74,000 tonnes are thought to be generated annually in the province, mostly in the Vancouver area. The program's waste management technologies, waste management legislation, criteria for siting disposal facilities, and public information plan are among the major topics discussed.
