County seeks help from company to find more Canadian trash to be sent to Michigan landfill

KIMBALL TOWNSHIP, Mich. – A company likely will be helping St. Clair County find more Canadian trash to be sent into the U.S. for disposal at a Michigan landfill.

The Times Herald of Port Huron reports ( ) St. Clair County commissioners on Wednesday took the first step in approving a three-year contract with Canadian company Enertec Inc. The board will be asked to give the contract final approval on July 17.

The trash would go to the Smiths Creek Sanitary Landfill in St. Clair County’s Kimball Township, about 50 miles northeast of Detroit.

Enertec gets 50 cents per ton of trash it brokers for the landfill.

County chairman Jeff Bohm says the number of Canadian trash trucks on area roads isn’t near 2003 levels, when people complained about traffic heading to Michigan landfills.
