Will the entire site be zoned for this type of facility? What is the plan for that additional land?

No. The total 207 acres will not be rezoned as only 4.5 ha is required for the facility and reasonable space for expansion (a potential future recycling sorting facility, for example). Further discussions on this will be required with County Planning staff and the Township of Springwater now that the technical studies have been completed. Factors that may influence how the property is rezoned may include agency comments received regarding the Environmental Impact Study, preservation of space for recreational activities, and discussions with neighbouring landowners.
