Declaration order: expired
Date submitted: December 11, 1998
Expiry of public comment period: January 10, 1999
Decision date: February 10, 1999
On February 10, 1999, the Minister, with the concurrence of Cabinet, approved the declaration order providing for the continued use of the City of Brockville Landfill Site until the contours currently approved under the Environmental Protection Act have been reached. Under Condition 3 of the previous exemption order, BROC-C-3 (Ontario Regulation 718/92), combined with the approval of the Leeds and Grenville Waste Management System Plan (Order in Council number 221/98) requires that no waste be deposited at the Brockville Landfill Site after February 11, 1999. However, as a result of changes, the site is filling at a much slower rate than projected in 1994. Therefore, the site will not reach the approved final contours by the closure date. It is expected that the site will reach the approved final contours sometime in the year 2003. The declaration order expired in 2004 and the landfill site is now closed.
