Waste Incineration Enables a Busy, Remote Fishing Lodge to Preserve the Pristine Wilderness

Rivers Inlet, British Columbia, is on the rugged Pacific coast, 300 miles north of Vancouver. It is one of the best spots on the planet to catch wild salmon. For 30 years, family-owned Black Gold Lodge has hosted thousands of people from around the world in their quest to catch wild salmon. The lodge is in the middle of this premier sport fishing destination, but that's not the only thing that's amazing about Black Gold Lodge. It's a floating lodge. The lodge, every cabin, all the facilities, even their incinerator, is on floating docks.

There are no roads to Black Gold Lodge. Everything arrives and departs by boat or seaplane. You might imagine the small mountain of waste generated by hundreds of tourists and the dedicated staff that makes sure that their trip of a lifetime is truly amazing. The lodge uses a compact Firelake A-400 incinerator to cleanly and quietly take care of all that waste.

While guests are on the water reeling in their catch, in the lodge celebrating their catch, or in their cabin catching a few zzz's, this compact incinerator (it's just 3.5 feet x 5.5 feet) is quietly taking care of all the rubbish; turning a small mountain of refuse into a few shovels of inert ash. Periodically, a staff member takes the ash, by boat, to a mainland disposal site. Clean and simple.

You might think that it's costly to be such a great steward of the environment. Actually, the incinerator saves the lodge thousands every year in waste transportation fees. Their dependable little workhorse will pay for itself many, many times over during its long life.
