Was waste generation considered?

Yes. Waste generation was a consideration in the siting process for the MMF, a location where waste from multiple collection vehicles will be consolidated. The search area encompassed lands within Springwater, Oro-Medonte, Innisfil, Essa, and Clearview and was based on the centre of waste generation in the County. This area considers not only the number of households throughout the County (where garbage is generated) but minimization of travel distance. Transportation efficiencies are important for the MMF as curbside collection vehicles must collect waste throughout the County but be able to return to the transfer location and discharge in a timely manner at the end of the day.
