When it comes to the mass amounts of trees piled up at CBRM landfill ,
1st and foremost they have a large mass scale wood chipper on site , why they are making a mole outta a mountain when they chip all the demo debris for wood pile and mix it in nails and all into the compost piles they give away 2 times a yr and even that is a effort to go thru in order to get that given away .
2nd they have strict policy of no materials may be removed from the landfill unless your one of the workers who drag away anything and everything they want to some extent , the public is banned from doing that very thing tho .
3rd there are people here crying on daily basis to have wood from Fiona hauled away and CBRM is no longer accepting certain types yard debris , most trees and brush there is contractor or home owner cut all ready , when Fiona hit there was a 1-2 hour wait to get in there for drop off .
4th many who were selling are almost giving away for what is "clean " wood , many don't want that debris dropped off at local landfill due to possible cross contamination after it's hauled from drop zone and fill material ( soil , garbage , metals Etc.) Mixed in .
5th CBRM dropped the ball on disposal of this material , had they set up the industrial wood chipper unit , from day one it could went straight to bio mass instead of clear cutting and dropping off trailer loads of fresh cut compared to storm clean up .
6th it is a complete PITA just going in that facility to drop off normal sorted materials , when contractors come in and drop off job site un sorted materials even tho they are charged a fee , it's never sorted and simply dozed over . Household is free but must be sorted . 2 sets of rules in that place .
Simply put there is surplus of free or very cheap firewood across the municipality just about everywhere you drive here , no one wants go into a place that regularly gives free flat tires and your licence plate tracked on your monthly visits . You be surprised the amount of arguments there on daily basis , I 'm there myself enough to see what takes place . CBRM simply wants someone to bail them out for inactive status to deal with this issue from day one .
Hope this clarifies a few questions .
