The Ridge Landfill is scheduled to reach its approved capacity by next year.
That’s why the landfill, which currently receives industrial, institutional and commercial waste from all of Ontario is looking to open new sites on their current footprint, which would give it another 20 years to accept waste.
The landfill recently completed an environmental assessment for the proposed expansion.
Among the plans is to reduce the areas that waste is accepted from, relocate a couple of green spaces, increase diversion efforts and develop new smell and leachate management systems.
Residents can now view and comment on the environmental assessment up until March 13.
