1 LWTI Meeting Margaret Fisher, dvm CFIA

2 Landfills No new permit applications No new permit applications Armstrong – public meeting Nov 20 – will have CFIA rep. there to address SRM questions. Armstrong – public meeting Nov 20 – will have CFIA rep. there to address SRM questions. Kootenays – two sites will qualify but waiting for protocols from manager – Cranbrook and Columbia Valley Kootenays – two sites will qualify but waiting for protocols from manager – Cranbrook and Columbia Valley Others either not interested or won’t qualify Others either not interested or won’t qualify

3 Slaughter Plants Newly licensed plants must meet BC Meat regs as well as comply with the federal SRM requirements – F/D legislation. Newly licensed plants must meet BC Meat regs as well as comply with the federal SRM requirements – F/D legislation. Annex N best guide Annex N best guide Program support? Must be discussed Program support? Must be discussed Is an SRM permit required? If yes then involves CFIA SRM inspectors and me. Is an SRM permit required? If yes then involves CFIA SRM inspectors and me.

4 How to know if SRM permit required? If plant receives or transports SRM. If plant receives or transports SRM. Discuss. Discuss.

5 Cut/Wraps Jurisdictional issues. Jurisdictional issues. If receive OTM carcasses then need a permit. If receive OTM carcasses then need a permit. Where will their SRM go for disposal? Where will their SRM go for disposal?

6 Disposal Options Pick up for rendering – limited Pick up for rendering – limited Permitted landfill – some regions Permitted landfill – some regions On site disposal – only if allowed by provincial/municipal bodies. Allowed for some facilities – cut/wraps, vet clinics or if slaughter facility only slaughters live. On site disposal – only if allowed by provincial/municipal bodies. Allowed for some facilities – cut/wraps, vet clinics or if slaughter facility only slaughters live. Compost – not popular in BC Compost – not popular in BC Non – contiguous premises policy….. Non – contiguous premises policy…..

7 Non – contiguous policy Designed as an option for disposal if no other solutions – Maritimes. Designed as an option for disposal if no other solutions – Maritimes. Very similar requirements to those of naturally contained landfills – ie soil porosity must be very low. Very similar requirements to those of naturally contained landfills – ie soil porosity must be very low. Potential option for BC? Potential option for BC?

8 Natural Landfill for Dummies (Non- contiguous premises) 1.Separation – adequate measures (distance, fencing etc) must be used to prevent the access of domestic ruminants to SRM. Visitors should be restricted and logged. 1.Separation – adequate measures (distance, fencing etc) must be used to prevent the access of domestic ruminants to SRM. Visitors should be restricted and logged. 2.Bottom of the pit – must be constructed from materials eg. soil / clay etc with a hydraulic conductivity 1 x cm/s. The soil in the specific area may be adequate. Resources are available which document the soil types and hydraulic conductivity of the soil in various places in Canada. Check with provincial Ministry of Environment staff to find these data. 2.Bottom of the pit – must be constructed from materials eg. soil / clay etc with a hydraulic conductivity 1 x cm/s.

Cap / cover – the SRM must be covered adequately (type or quantity of material) to prevent leachate formation and scavenging. 3.

Equipment – the use / cleaning of equipment used at the landfill site must be sufficient to prevent potential cross contamination of other sites. 4.

Written procedures must be submitted by the owner / operator covering all the above. 5. Written procedures must be submitted by the owner / operator covering all the above. 6. Records must be maintained (tags / weights). 6. Records must be maintained (tags / weights).

9 Compost Not attractive in BC? Not attractive in BC? Likely doesn’t reduce potential infectivity by much but is convenient, buys time (reduces urgency of disposal) Likely doesn’t reduce potential infectivity by much but is convenient, buys time (reduces urgency of disposal) Must find suitable site for application – no ruminant exposure (wild/domestic) Must find suitable site for application – no ruminant exposure (wild/domestic) Still considered SRM Still considered SRM

10 Emergencies Ideally meet criteria for disease containment as well as SRM disposal Ideally meet criteria for disease containment as well as SRM disposal Incineration good option if mobile Incineration good option if mobile
