The village of Beiseker in Alberta, Canada, has tabled a decision regarding the proposed site of a controversial biomedical waste incinerator.
G-M Pearson has proposed to build a thermal treatment plant in the village’s southeast corner along Highway 9. According to an Airdrie Today report, the proposal has drawn opposition from residents in Beiseker, Irricana and the surrounding area.
If constructed, the facility is expected to dispose of roughly 8,000 tonnes of biomedical and other non-hazardous waste per year.
