Waterloo Region backs away from pricey waste facility

Date June 14, 2016 Author Jason Smith Categories Industry News

Waterloo Region’s landfill is quickly filling up, and a solution to that problem has to be created in the next 15 years.

After considering an “energy from waste” facility, a trash incinerator that would produce power, the Region of Waterloo rejected the idea.

The region's planning and works committee decided it was better to wait to commit to expense, which is estimated at up to $600 million. The decision was made to focus on diverting waste from the landfill instead.
