Kingston signs access agreement to landfill
Poly-Pacific International Inc. has signed an access agreement with the City of Kingston, Ontario, Canada in April 2007. The agreement will allow Poly-Pacific to gain access to the McAdoo Lane Landfill Site for the purpose of assessing the size and quality of the nylon fibre resource.
The McAdoo Lane Landfill Site was operated as a licensed landfill from 1970 through to its closure in 1987. Although no formal records of landfilling were kept, it is estimated that approximately 180,000 tons (360 million pounds) of industrial waste nylon were deposited between 1970 and 1987 and that the overall volume of the present landfill is in the order of 1 million cubic meters.
