There is an average of 44 vehicles per day in 2003 with approximately 17,610 tonnes of waste disposed of on site.

Sump Waste Several holding ponds accommodate for disposal of sump wastes (from commercial and industrial businesses). Waste manifests and testing procedures are in place to ensure proper non-hazardous materials are being disposed of properly. Once a holding pond is full, it is tested and the test results are satisfactory, the liquids are spray irrigated onto completed containment units and the sludge is dewatered and used for daily landfill cover.
