Mount Pearl Biomedical Waste Transfer Facility

Proponent: Stericycle, ULC

Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

Project Description:

The proponent proposes to establish a biomedical waste transfer facility using an existing building at 27 Clyde Avenue, Donovan’s Industrial Park, Mount Pearl. The proponent currently collects and transports biomedical waste generated by the hospitals directly to New Brunswick and Nova Scotia for disposal. The transfer facility would collect, receive and consolidate the waste before shipping outside the Province. Upon receipt at the facility, the biomedical waste will be off-loaded inside the building where it will be inspected/weighed and transferred into containers more suitable for marine transportation. The containers will be sealed and then put into temporary refrigerated storage. The facility will receive approximately 2,000 kilograms of biomedical waste per day (or 60,000 kilograms per month) and will keep in storage for one week. The existing building/warehouse will require only minor modifications such as the addition of two loading dock doors.
