Eastern Ontario Waste Handling Facility Landfill Expansion Environmental Assessment


GFL Environmental Inc. (formerly Lafleche Environmental Inc.), the owner and operator of the existing Eastern Ontario Waste Handling Facility (EOWHF) in Moose Creek, Ontario, has completed an Environmental Assessment (EA) in accordance with the requirements of the Environmental Assessment Act (EAA) seeking approval to expand the disposal capacity of the existing landfill at the EOWHF.  The proposed expansion will involve the development of Stage 3B and Stage 4 inside the boundaries of the existing EOWHF.  These landfill stages were identified for development in the original approval for the EOWHF.

 

The EOWHF is located within the Township of North Stormont, approximately 5 kilometres north-northwest of the village of Moose Creek, Ontario, and 5 kilometres east of the village of Casselman, Ontario.   The purpose of the EA is to assess the potential effects of the proposed landfill expansion on the environment. 

As required under Section 6.2(1) of the Environmental Assessment Act and according to the Terms of Reference approved by the Minister of the Environment and Climate Change on May 11, 2017, GFL has submitted its EA to the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) for review and approval.
