Environmental Assessment of the Proposed W12A Landfill Expansion

he City of London (the City) has initiated a study under the Environmental Assessment (EA) Act for a proposed expansion of the City’s existing landfill (W12A), which is expected to reach capacity in 2025. The service area for the landfill expansion is proposed to be enlarged to a regional area, which would include: the City of London, County of Huron, County of Perth, County of Elgin, County of Lambton, and County of Middlesex. The City wants community feedback on the proposed expansion of the W12A Landfill and is hosting this second series of open houses as follows:
Wednesday, November 29, 2017
Horton Street Goodwill Industries (3rd Floor)
255 Horton Street (at Wellington) London,

Thursday, November 30, 2017
Lambeth Community Centre (Gymnasium)
7112 Beattie Street, London
2 - 4 p.m. and 5 - 8 p.m.
It is proposed that the landfill expansion will occur within the area on and adjacent to the existing landfill property. At these open houses the public will learn about the proposed content of the Draft Terms of Reference (overall work plan for the project) including existing site conditions, preliminary landfill expansion concepts (known as ‘Alternative Methods’), the proposed methodology and technical studies for evaluating and comparing the ‘Alternative Methods’, and how to be involved in the EA process. Additionally information on the development of the City’s draft Resource Recovery Strategy will be available to the public. A main focus of the open houses will be to inform the public and seek input on the ‘Alternative Methods’ for landfill expansion and the criteria to be used to comparatively evaluate the ‘Alternative Methods’.
