When will the business case be developed for the OPF? Why has it not been undertaken?

A viability assessment for the OPF was undertaken in 2012. It concluded that given the County’s tonnages, development of a facility would be a viable option. As technology for processing organics varies widely, site-specific costs to develop a facility at 2976 Horseshoe Valley Road West will now be determined through a procurement process. This process will allow vendors to submit proposals with detailed costing once site conditions are known. To begin this process, a Request for Information seeking information on organics management options is being undertaken with a preliminary business case to be presented in early 2017. Following the results of a Request for Proposal, a final business case will be presented in 2018 for County Council’s consideration and direction.
