Surrey says it has solved the stink problem caused by thousands of tonnes of rotting food scraps awaiting recycling.
A state-of-the-art, fully enclosed processing plant is being built in Port Kells which will seal in obnoxious smells and stop odour from drifting into the neighbourhood.
Surrey engineering manager Rob Costanzo said neighbours won't sniff a thing when the $68-million operation is finished next year.
“Odour’s a big deal. That’s why we want to ensure we have a world-class suppression system in place. We are pioneers in this technology in North America,” he said.
