Waste Management is only permitting soils to be deposited in the Petrolia landfill. At the present time, the staff predict that the site will continue to accept soils into the second quarter of 2017. The final site closure date could still vary dependent upon the rate of delivery of soils into the site.
Once the capacity of the landfill is reached, Waste Management will proceed to remove the scales, trailer and the shed from the site. New fencing will then be constructed at the depot location to restrict access to the remainder of the landfill. The Council plans to continue the operation of the depot at the site for wastes and recycling. When the site is closed the hours of operation of the depot will posted at the site and on the municipal website.
