Was a business case completed for the MMF?

Yes. In 2014, County Council was presented with a financial analysis in regard to development of transfer infrastructure. This report was updated recently (MMF updated Business Case) to consider site-specific conditions and the impact of the Waste-Free Ontario Act. Development of a County facility to manage the long-term transfer of garbage and blue box recycling until 2022 had the lowest total costs over a 20-year period. This report noted that continued reliance on outside contracts for transfer brings risk associated with cost increases, long-term availability, and control over our waste management operations. With limited transfer options in this region, the MMF would provide for secure, long-term management of our garbage.
