This isn’t the first time the Vancouver area shows high cadmium levels. Last year, the Cache Creek dump, from the Greater Vancouver area, also showed disturbing degrees of cadmium – six times higher than the legal limit! Paul Henderson, general solid waste materials manager from Metro Vancouver, is urging occupants to recycle batteries and corded electronics, noting that these gadgets are banned from landfills.
