PRRD replacing Chetwynd landfill scales

The Peace River Regional District awarded a contract to Sperling Hansen Associates to replace the scales at the Chetwynd landfill at their recent meeting. Design and tender support will cost $50,267.50, with $5,315.50 per week for administration, quality control and construction during the project.
 “It’s just to keep our landfill more functional. And hopefully we get another year out of it, because we’re scheduled to close this landfill in eight years,” said Chetwynd Mayor Allen Courtoreille.
In 2018, regional district staff identified an opportunity to replace the scale, and this year a request for proposal was put out to find qualified professionals to complete the work. PRRD chair Brad Sperling reiterated that the scale simply needs to be replaced, keeping it updated and relevant with other PRRD solid waste facilities.
The aging Chetwynd Landfill Scale is due for a replacement, having been built in the 1980s.
