Decision Advice and Other Information

The Infrastructure and Environment Committee:

 

1. Directed the General Manager, Solid Waste Management Services to revise the Residual Waste Management Work Plan, as presented in Attachment 1 (Residual Waste Management Work Plan) to the report (May 19, 2023) from the General Manager, Solid Waste Management Services, by removing any authority to negotiate Energy from Waste contracts, and add community consultation on Energy from Waste, and to report directly to the June 14, 15 and 16, 2023 meeting of City Council with a revised Attachment 1 (Residual Waste Management Work Plan).

Origin

(May 19, 2023) Report from the General Manager, Solid Waste Management Services

Summary

Landfill space in the province of Ontario, and at the City of Toronto's Green Lane Landfill, is expected to reach capacity by approximately 2034/2035.

 

While the City has a number of successful waste reduction and diversion programs in place to support the Long Term Waste Management Strategy's1 aspirational goals of zero-waste and moving towards a circular economy, long-term solutions for the disposal of residual waste (e.g. garbage) beyond the lifespan of Green Lane Landfill are still required.

 

It's critical that the City continue planning for the future long-term disposal of Toronto's garbage as building new waste disposal infrastructure can take more than 10 years to complete given the estimated planning, regulatory, and construction timeframes, and recent Government of Ontario amendments to the Environmental Assessment Act make the process for establishing new landfills more challenging by requiring applicants to obtain the local, and in some cases, adjacent municipal support.

 

As part of this work, Solid Waste Management Services recently completed two technical studies that explored options to manage the City's residual waste including a Mixed Waste Processing Study and a Residual Waste Disposal Study. This report summarizes the key findings from those studies and proposes a Residual Waste Management Work Plan outlining short- and medium-term actions that the City can initiate to extend the lifespan of Green Lane Landfill as well as strategic long-term planning activities to manage the City's residual waste.
