Residents of a Prince Rupert neighbourhood say a pellet plant is disturbing them with noise, smell, and dust.
From noise, to dust, to bad smells, people in Prince Rupert are fed up with on-going issues at a pellet export terminal.
Kevin Frizzel lives three blocks from the terminal.
"There's a constant hum," he says. "Every time I'm in my yard I hear this constant hum, and the smell of wood, you can smell that throughout the town. And you can see the wood dust on top of the silos."
Residents also complain of dust build-ups in the neighbourhood near the plant.
Barry Cunningham is a city councillor in Prince Rupert who is attempting to get answers. He made a motion to bring Pinnacle in before council to explain how it will resolve these issues.
"My main concern is that Pinnacle's not communicating with the people about what they're doing," he told CBC. "I would really like Pinacle to come to city council and explain to the people what they're doing, what the problems are, and if and when they can fix them."
Pinnacle declined an interview with CBC, instead sending a written statement saying it has installed structures to damper noise, and that it has not detected significant dust deposits. The statement says also says that in order to combat smell, Pinnacle attempts to aerate its products when the wind is blowing away from the community.
