Brooks Road Landfill Capacity Expansion - Notice of Completion

Brooks Road Environmental, owners and operators of the Brooks Road Landfill, have completed an Environmental Screening Process for the proposed expansion (vertical and horizontal) of the Brooks Road Landfill, located at 160 Brooks Road, near Cayuga, Haldimand County, Ontario. The capacity expansion proposed under this Environmental Screening Process is for approximately 219,400 cubic metres (including waste and daily/final cover). 

The proposed capacity expansion would allow Brooks Road Environmental to respond to the growing demands from waste generators and customers who need a safe and reliable waste management facility for disposal of their post diversion solid non-hazardous industrial, commercial and institutional waste. The proposed capacity expansion will add capacity equal to approximately two additional years of waste acceptance over and above the remaining/ current approved capacity. There are no changes to the annual fill rate limits proposed as part of this project.

The purpose of the Environmental Screening is to study the potential effects of the capacity expansion on the environment.

The Environmental Screening Process

The proposed project is subject to the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks' (MECP) Environmental Screening Process for waste management projects in accordance with O. Reg. 101/07 under the Environmental Assessment Act. It is being conducted in accordance with the planning and design process outlined in the MECP’s “Guide to Environmental Assessment Requirements for Waste Management Projects.”

The Environmental Screening Process involved identifying and applying screening criteria to determine and describe potential environmental effects, public/external agency consultation, and the development of measures to mitigate identified environmental effects.

The results of the process were documented in an Environmental Screening Report, which will be available for a 60-day calendar day review period starting April 3, 2024, and ending on June 2, 2024.  

View the Environmental Screening Report online and hard copies of the report are available at the Cayuga Public Library & Heritage Centre at 19 Talbot Street West in Cayuga, Ontario during the library's operating hours of Tuesday to Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you require an alternative format, please contact:

In addition, a request may be made to the MECP for an order requiring a higher level of study (i.e. requiring an individual/comprehensive EA approval before being able to proceed), or that conditions be imposed (e.g. require further studies), only on the grounds that the requested order may prevent, mitigate or remedy adverse impacts on constitutionally protected Aboriginal and treaty rights. Requests on other grounds will not be considered. Requests should include the requester contact information and full name. Requests should specify what kind of order is being requested (request for conditions or a request for an individual/comprehensive environmental assessment), how an order may prevent, mitigate or remedy potential adverse impacts on Aboriginal and treaty rights, and any information in support of the statements in the request. This will ensure that the ministry is able to efficiently begin reviewing the request. Please visit the ministry’s website for more information on requests for orders under section 16 of the Environmental Assessment Act.
