What will this site be designated in the County’s Official Plan?
We will be working with Provincial and County Planning staff to determine how this facility will be designated in our Official Plan. The County’s approach to waste management has evolved away from traditional landfilling of all waste. As our efforts are now focused on diversion, designation of lands with infrastructure where there is no waste disposed, such as the Environmental Resource Recovery Centre, will be further considered with the application for planning approvals. A site-specific Official Plan designation will be applied to the site to reflect the non-landfill nature of the facility and its operation.
