Ridge Landfill Expansion
Progressive Waste Solutions is proposing to expand the life of the Ridge Landfill for an additional 20 years following stringent Ontario Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Landfill Regulations.
The annual permitted disposal capacity will not increase. The expansion will include a public drop-off depot to allow residents to divert materials which are not being collected in the current residential recycling program as well as the construction of a new community activity centre.
Public input is very important. Progressive Waste Solutions has conducted open houses for the public concerning the Terms of Reference for an Environmental Assessment for the proposed expansion. The Terms of Reference is now before the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change for approval.
