NOTICES

Draft Environmental Assessment Study Report – W12A Landfill The City of London is seeking community input on the draft Environmental Assessment Study Report (EASR) for the proposed expansion of the W12A Landfill. The EASR details all work completed during the environmental assessment.  The draft EASR will be available for public review until May 21, 2021 on the project website (getinvolved.london.ca/WhyWasteDisposal).  Hardcopies (for loan) and/or memory sticks of the draft EASR are available and can be obtained by contacting Tracey Lee by phone at (519) 661-CITY (2489) ext. 8413 or by e-mail at tlee@london.ca.

The City is proposing to approximately double the current capacity of the landfill by increasing the height of the existing waste footprint which will extend its life to 2049.  In addition, the service area will be increased to a regional area, which includes: City of London, County of Huron, County of Perth, County of Elgin, County of Lambton, and County of Middlesex.  The proposed design capacity for landfill expansion over the 25 year planning period is 9.9 million tonnes including 0.5 million tonnes from neighbouring municipalities (about 5%).   

Following the review period, the draft EASR will be updated to address comments received and then submitted to the Ontario Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks (MECP) for approval.  The MECP approval process will also include opportunities to provide comments.

Interested persons are encouraged to review the draft EASR and provide comments by May 21, 2021. Comments may be submitted through the project website getinvolved.london.ca/WhyWasteDisposal or by mail, e-mail or fax to the contacts for the project provided below.
