In 2019, the AV Landfill generated 15,971 tonnes of waste. When broken down, 30 per cent of the waste was organic (food waste).

As a result, 8.55 tonnes of carbon dioxide (C02) was released into the Alberni Valley airshed which is equal to two years of electricity for one household or 73.94 tanks of fuel.
