No Council Application In 1080 Bait Disposal

Published: Mon 30 Oct 2000 01:53 PM
No application to dispose of the 22 tonnes of 1080 poison carted from the West Coast to the city has been received yet by the Christchurch City Council.
Consequently, no decision has been made yet by the Council to accept the material for dumping at the Burwood landfill, says the Council's Team Leader Environmental Effects, Klaus Prusas. "If an application is made, an investigation will be carried out by the Council's Hazardous Waste Advisory Service and reported to the Council for consideration and a decision," Mr Prusas says. City Council staff, along with staff of Environment Canterbury and the Police's Commercial Vehicles Investigation Unit, is investigating the spillage incident.
