New Brunswick revokes Bennett's authorization to accept Domtar site waste

FREDERICTON, NB-Following a review of information submitted by Bennett Environmental concerning the material from the Domtar site in Sydney, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick's Department of the Environment and Local Government has decided not to allow the company to accept the material from the Domtar site at its Belledune facility. The department said it does not believe the material meets condition number 3 of the Environmental Impact Assessment Determination, dated Jan. 17, 2003, which states, "the proponent is authorized to import creosote and non-chlorinated hydrocarbon soil only." The decision revokes a previous authorization from the government (ELW August 29, 2005).
