New Harbour

The Upper Trinity South (New Harbour) Waste Disposal Site operated as a domestic waste disposal facility from the early 1970s until 2009.  In the mid-1990s, Provincial Government undertook a polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) remediation program at a nearby scrap yard located in the community of Makinsons, NL.  During this program, low-level PCB-impacted scrap metal and transformer casings were transported to the New Harbour facility and buried on-site.

The Department of Environment and Climate Change has been completing environmental assessment and remediation work in relation to the PCB area since 2002.  The Department has also been managing closure activities at the New Harbour site since 2009.
