Why is this facility being developed?

Through the 2010 Solid Waste Management Strategy, we listened to residents as Simcoe County spoke strongly about no new landfills. We are now undertaking this process to do the right thing to enhance our diversion programs and improve services for our residents.

This facility will offer a solution to securely manage our own waste, control transfer and processing costs, and help to reduce our waste disposal by creating our own processing capacity. It will bring added environmental benefits such as reducing the number of trucks hauling County organics long distances for processing, the ability to add materials to our green bin program, and creation of valuable end products such as compost or fertilizer to support local agricultural initiatives.
