Landfill expansion passes provincial Environmental Compliance Approval

UPDATE: Here is the link to the Amended Environmental Compliance Approval

Waste Management sent an email to various stakeholders today: “West Carleton Environmental Centre has received the Amended Environmental Compliance Approval from the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change and will be posted on our (WCEC) website.

That’s the last piece of provincial approval that Waste Management needs to operate the landfill.  They still have to meet all of the requirements of the municipal Site Plan approval, including establishing a Host Municipal Responsibility Agreement (HMRA) with the City.

On the HMRA file, we learned today that the final agreement will have to be approved by City Council, so there will be some mechanism for public the public to provide comments after the deal is hammered out.
