No More Dumping Treated Wood
The Eureka Reporter gives us the heads up this morning: Starting next month, you won't be able to take treated wood to the dump, at least temporarily. Looks like Eureka City Garbage will be the first to enforce the rule but other dumps, including Tom's Trash (where the heck is Tom's Trash?), are likely to follow.
All this because of some new regulation that takes effect on July 1 and, of course, policies need to be established to comply with the regulation. What people will do with treated lumber until the new policies are established is anyone's guess although illegal dumping is likely to increase, as the Reporter article notes.
What gets me is that, currently, treated lumber is taken to a landfill in Anderson. After the regulation takes effect and policies for disposal are established, the lumber will still be sent to Anderson but with more costly paperwork involved. Boy, that sounds like progress to me.
