Waste Management is seeking approval to import waste from Vancouver, BC to its Greater Wenatchee Regional Landfill about 100 miles east of Seattle, WA. The landfill currently accepts close to 1,000 tons of waste per day primarily from surrounding counties as far as Spokane. "Any landfill, especially a regional landfill, is in the business to import waste - it's a business," said Dave Lowe, senior district manager with Waste Management. He said the landfill currently has 90 years of remaining capacity and that adding an estimated 50,000 tons per year of waste from Vancouver would reduce that by 15 years.
