Details on Brooks Road Landfill expansion released
March 7, 2014
The operators of the Brooks Road Landfill in Cayuga, formerly known as Edwards Landfill, hope to expand the site vertically, extending its life by about five to seven years.
The company has released its draft Terms of Reference (ToR) and copies are available on the company’s website at www.brenvironmental.com and at the County’s offices in Caledonia, Cayuga and Hagersville as well as the Cayuga library.
The proponent hopes to add about 421,000 m3 of capacity to the site, and on top of the vertical expansion, they also want to go from a daily maximum fill rate to an annual maximum fill rate, allowing them some flexibility in taking on larger loads on busier days of the year. At the end of the year, the fill rate would still be the same at 151,000 tonnes/year.
