Alberta demo firm ordered to remove illegal landfill

The Provincial Court of Alberta has ordered McColman & Sons Demolition Ltd. to remove an unauthorized landfill in Strathcona County and remediate the site at an estimated cost of $1.85 million.

The company was also fined $20,000 for operating the unauthorized landfill.

The company pleaded guilty to one count of knowingly operating a landfill without registration under the Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act and one count of conducting an activity related to the destruction of a wetland under the Water Act.

The company was charged on Aug. 24, 2011.

The creative sentencing order requires that the company remove all waste from the site and address any adverse environmental consequences by Jan. 1, 2015.

A stop order has also been issued to prevent the company from using the site as a landfill for a three year period.
