Waste Management Planning

SITE SELECTION PROCESS FOR A NEW LANDFILL SITE FOR GREENSTONE

The Municipality is planning to conduct an Environmental Assessment (EA) to review alternative options for municipal solid waste management within the Municipality. The Draft Terms of Reference (ToR) have been submitted to the Ministry of Environment, in accordance with the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. The ToR will establish the framework for conducting the Environmental Assessment.
 
The Environmental Assessment is needed because the Municipality’s landfill site in Geraldton Ward is approaching capacity. A long term solution for managing all of the Municipality of Greenstone's solid waste is needed.
 
This website will form an online window through which members of the public, agencies and other interested persons can actively participate in the planning process. The website will host documents prepared during the study and provide contact information to be used for submitting comments, questions and concerns. Please watch this space for more details as the study progress.
