Notice of Draft EA Submission - Solid Waste Management

May 17, 2017

The City of Sault Ste. Marie has undertaken an Environmental Assessment (EA) Study to determine the preferred method for managing its municipal solid waste.

The City has now prepared a Draft Environmental Assessment Report to document the project. This document explains the decision making process, results of the studies and input received through the consultation process. The Report includes recommendations to continue to enhance waste reduction, reuse and recycling with the disposal of remaining residual waste accommodated within an expansion of the existing municipal landfill on Fifth Line. Details of the proposed landfill expansion (including proposed landfill mining within a portion of the existing site), potential impacts to the environment and commitment to mitigate these impacts is also included in the Draft EA.
