Hartland landfill and recycling facility is owned and operated by the Capital Regional District (CRD) and is a multi-purpose facility providing recycling, household hazardous waste collection, yard and garden waste collection and processing, controlled waste disposal and landfill services to commercial and residential customers. In 2003, the landfill gas-to-electricity plant was built to utilize the methane in the landfill gas to produce electricity. The gas utilization facility currently produces about 1.6 megawatts of “green” electricity, which is enough to supply power to approximately 1,600 homes. The CRD's most recent calculations indicate that at present filling rates, the life expectation of the Hartland Landfill is 2035.
