GFL Delta Organics Facility

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

​Metro Vancouver​ issued air quality permit GVA1090 to GFL Delta Organics (fomerly Enviro-smart Organics), in Ladner, on August 1, 2018. This permit was the subject of an appeal hearing in front of a BC Environmental Appeal Board panel which released a decision on March 12, 2021.

More information about the original permit and the EAB decision can be found under "Related Links".

The permit required that GFL fully enclose their composting facility in order to reduce odour impacts on the community. While nu​mbers have decreased since the enclosed facility was commissioned in late 2020, Metro Vancouver continues to receive complaints about the facility. Complaints are most useful when they include the time and location the odour was observed and an informative description of the odour and its impact on the complainant.
