The Regional District of Fraser-Fort George is undertaking a $7.4-million project to relocate the entrance to the Foothills Boulevard Regional Landfill and make other improvements.
Over the past week trees that lined the landfill's northeast boundary along Foothills Boulevard were removed as part of the preparation work. Additionally, BC Hydro has been trees related to power lines near the landfill.
"The sightline change is quite different," said FFGRD environmental services general manager Petra Wildauer. "With the clearing, we can move forward with preparation for the construction of the new entrance and a new compost pad."
About 466 cubic metres of timber were removed.
