The Corporation of the Municipality of Wawa Municipal Waste Disposal Site Expansion
The Municipality’s waste disposal site, located approximately 1.7km east of Highway 17 on High Falls Road (see Figure 1), has been serving area residents since 1980. The site is approximately 22 hectares in size, of which 2.6 hectares are approved for use and operation as a fill area and operates under an Environmental Compliance Approval issued by the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change. The municipal waste disposal site accepts post- diversion waste generated within the communities of Wawa and Hawk Junction as well as the Village of Michipicoten River. Waste is also accepted seasonally from Lake Superior Provincial Park. Approximately five (5) years of disposal capacity remains at the site.
The purpose of this notice is to inform those interested that the Municipality of Wawa is intends to initiate the Environmental Screening Process for Waste Management Projects under the Environmental Protection Act to address the need for additional capacity at the waste disposal site. Expansion will provide an additional disposal capacity of 100,000 m3 (estimated 25 year lifespan) and allow the Municipality to continue to operate at the current location.
