British Columbia Mine Reclamation Symposium

Tell BC Environment, Lands and Parks where to go : you can improve the land reclamation component of the compostand biosolids recycling regulation Bryden, Jack A.


BC's proposed new Municipal Organic Matter Regulation includes a section for the safe use of composted municipal solid waste and biosolids. Advice provided by those who attend the reclamation symposium will be used to improve the proposed regulation. High quality, pathogen-free composts and biosolids are considered to be equivalent to standard fertilisers and soil amendments and are exempted from this regulation. The regulation contains management and monitoring requirements for lower quality municipal organic matter to ensure that it is used beneficially, and not merely disposed of with possible negative impacts on the environment.
