In an attempt to rid itself of ten weeks worth of piled pulpwood, Stora Enso has secured approval to sell the material, the Chronicle Herald has reported.
The ten-week lockout at the mill has culminated in excess pulpwood that the company can’t process.
“There’s all kinds of pulpwood lying around, not only in our yard but out at roadside, and it’s going to just rot unless it’s sold,” the Herald reported Patricia Dietz, spokeswoman for Stora Enso Port Hawkesbury as saying. “Because it’s from Crown land, we have to get special permission to sell it elsewhere.”
The Herald further reported that Stora Enso put forth a request to the Natural Resources Department in February, and Cabinet just gave the company the go-ahead.
