Waste disposal company fined $145,000

A commercial waste disposal company has been fined $145,000 for operating an unlicensed facility in Surrey.

Provincial Court Judge Peder Gulbransen ordered Super Save Disposal Inc. to pay the money to the Greater Vancouver Sewerage and Drainage District by Oct. 13.

The Metro Vancouver regional district says the Langley-based company was charged with operating a transfer station or a material recovery facility without a licence for more than 14 months, even after multiple warnings from bylaw enforcement officers.

The district says Super Save Disposal pleaded guilty to one charge, the company's second such conviction under the bylaw.

According to court documents, a bylaw enforcement officer conducted a number of site inspections at the facility between Feb. 3, 2012 and April 9, 2013.

Metro Vancouver says an officer observed several bins stored on the site, some containing household items, construction and demolition waste, as well as salvaged materials such as metals, wood and tires.
