Walker launches Notice of Commencement for the future development of its South Landfill
NIAGARA, ON (Nov. 30) -Walker Industries (Walker) today announced it has commenced its Terms of Reference for the company’s proposed next phase of its South Landfill, allowing Walker to continue to provide essential waste disposal services to meet the needs of Niagara and surrounding communities.
“Walker’s Resource Management Campus plays a key role in helping Niagara recover resources, manage waste, and generate clean, renewable energy,” said Mike Deprez, Vice President, Environmental Division. “As Niagara region continues to grow, planning for long-term waste disposal capacity is increasingly important. Walker has safely managed landfills for more than forty years and our Phase 2 development would allow us to continue to provide these critical services to residents, businesses, and municipalities.”
To develop the next phase of its South Landfill, Walker has initiated an Environmental Assessment (EA). An EA sets out a planning and decision-making process that considers potential effects on the environment and surrounding community. As part of this process, Walker encourages members of the public, agencies, Indigenous communities and other interested persons to actively participate in the planning process by attending consultation opportunities or contacting staff directly.
Walker will host an initial public Open House to introduce the project, review and discuss the Environmental Assessment process and collect feedback.
Date: Thursday, Dec. 14
Time: 4 to 8 p.m.
Location: Club Italia, Grand Ballroom B,2525 Montrose Rd, Niagara Falls, ON
