District of Squamish will create a specific policy and procedures after an increase in offensive behaviour by customers at the Squamish Landfill.
In an update to Council on the Solid Waste Utility Bylaw, District staff says there has been increase in the number of customers who engage in offensive behavior or harass the staff at the landfill.
The staff is also concerned about customers who act inappropriately at the landfill.
The harassment has even led to one case of a customer being investigated by Squamish RCMP, though the report doesn’t provide any specific details of this incident.
District is working on a supplementary policy for the landfill staff on procedures to follow while dealing with customers who harass staff or act inappropriately at the landfill.
Customers can face bans for not paying at the landfill and for engaging in harassing behaviour.
