VTX was contracted by a waste management company and (property owner) to conduct an ECA at a property that was independently operated by a separate business entity as a Landfill in British Columbia. VTX’s provision of ECA services was consistent with the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Environmental Compliance Audit Z773-03 (R2013) Standard.
The objective of the ECA was to assess the Landfill’s level of compliance with their Authorization Permit granted by the Province, environmental statues, regulations, local laws and other identified criteria. To conduct this ECA, VTX staff interviewed or otherwise obtained information from the facility manager; consultant for facility operating entity; and A Freedom of Information Act request that was submitted to the B.C. Ministry of Environment. VTX’s final report identified items of non-compliance with permits and regulations, and/or areas were Best Management Practices improvements could be made in.
