Previous Reports

The Environmental Resource Recovery Centre is currently under development at 2976 Horseshoe Valley Road West, Springwater. This facility will house the Organics Processing Facility (OPF), Materials Management Facility (MMF), and areas for truck servicing, public education, and space to potentially sort blue box recycling in the future. 

Project Update

On June 26, 2018, County Council adopted a County Official Plan Amendment required to further development of the Environmental Resource Recovery Centre at 2976 Horseshoe Valley Road West, Springwater. Documentation regarding the County Official Plan Amendment will now be submitted to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs (MMA) for their consideration as approval of a County Official Plan Amendment is required from the province. The local land use planning process – which includes an amendment to the Township of Springwater's Official Plan and Zoning By-law as well as site plan approval – continues. 

Item CCW 2018-320, outlining details of the County Official Plan Amendment, can be found here (14.1). Documents related to the land use planning process for the ERRC can be found on the County's Planning webpage here.
