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 January 2, 2019, notification was received from Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing (MMAH) regarding their approval of the County Official Plan Amendment (COPA) for the Environmental Resource Recovery Centre (ERRC) at 2976 Horseshoe Valley Road West, Springwater. This is an important milestone as provincial land use approval is required to further project development. Information pertaining to this decision can be found on the provincial Environmental Registry here.

The 20-day appeal period for the approval ended on January 22, 2019.  We have received notification from the province that three (3) appeals have been submitted.  Given this, project development will now consider the process to address these appeals and, in addition, continue pursuing the local land use changes.  Additional studies required to support the approvals process, including plans for compensation planting and fire protection, are being advanced.
