Rumours have been rampant the trash resulting from the flood has taken years off the life span of the landfill, however, manager John Deagle said that is simply not the case.

Things have been going very smoothly and things are starting to get back to normal, he said.
Deagle said the only time the landfill was taxed was when numerous loads were coming to the facility at one time.
For example, he said on a peak day after the flood more than 900 loads were coming to the landfill per day. The busiest day for the landfill during normal times is Saturdays and includes about 600 loads.
To address the heavy work load the landfill brought in extra equipment and personnel and extended their hours of operation to 12 hours a day seven days a week.
Now, Deagle said things have slowed considerably.
Yesterday (July 10), the tonnage just from High River was 1,700 tonnes and we had 792 loads, he said.
Deagle said they have tried to save the majority of the appliance to be recycled, but some were simply in too bad of condition and had to be buried.
Every fridge and freezer is put in a special area, but many contain food and maggots, said Deagle.
Deagle said he is proud of his staff of 23 people at the landfill, many of whom have homes in High River, but remained on the job despite damage to their own homes.
It has been unbelievable, said Deagle of his staff.

Ever since we heard about the Medicine Hat situation we have had our employees keep an eye out for them, said John Deagle, manager of the Foothills Regional Landfill south of Okotoks. However, we havent had any evidence (of rats) this far north or west of Saskatchewan. We are keeping vigil and looking for any signs of them but so far, we havent had any evidence of rats.

A large Norway rat nest was destroyed at the Medicine Hat landfill site last week ending a highly publicized battle with the rodents in the Gas City since early August. Alberta has claimed to be rat-free in the past. Deagle said he is confident the foothills landfill is free of rats.
We have told our employees to be out on lookout especially at dusk (when) the first guys are in to work, Deagle said.
The only time I ever saw a rat was in Europe, Deagle said.
He said the daily burial of waste would make it difficult for rats to survive in the Foothills landfill.
As we bury our waste I dont think they could stand it very long because they would be suffocating if there were any gases given off, Deagle said. We are pretty diligent about covering our waste.
He added the proximity of the Medicine Hat landfill to Saskatchewan would make it more prone to rat-infestations than in the MD of Foothills and facilities in surrounding communities.
The City of Calgary has volumes 10 times larger than we have and they have reported no problems, Deagle said.

Foothills regional landfill manager John Deagle shows off a block of compressed Styrofoam as landfill employee Ken McCormack puts a printer into a recycling bin.

Landfill manager John Deagle said they are still in the preliminary stages of researching their options.
He said the issue is collecting and storing Styrofoam before it is compressed and this would require a large building.
However, the effort may be worthwhile as once its compacted, Styrofoam is a valuable commodity, currently selling for about $300 per tonne.
There is a market right now for the densified Styrofoam and its quite an active market, said Deagle.
Unfortunately, the recent Japanese earthquake and subsequent tsunami may have also dealt a blow to the plan.
Deagle said the machine is manufactured in Japan and its unknown what kind of impact the twin disasters will have.
I dont know if theres going to be any available right now, he said.
In the meantime, landfill officials have made good progress on recycling agricultural plastics. In particular, they want to find a way to deal with grain bags which are long plastic bags used to store grain in the fields.
Deagle said they are looking at equipment to roll up the bags in the field.
The ideal situation would be to get the machine and rent it out to farmers and ranchers, he said.
The bags would be collected at the landfill site and taken to a facility near Bassano, where they would be cleaned, processed and turned into pellets for re-use.
Deagle said they would also like to accept and recycle twine, but havent been able to find a process that would work.
