Bid for Toronto garbage receives first approval.

Bid for Toronto garbage receives first approval

The proposal by Notre Development Corporation of North Bay to ship a portion of Toronto's solid waste to the Adam's Mine site in Kirkland Lake has received initial approval from Toronto-area officials.

The solid waste interim steering committee (SWISC) has called for a detailed evaluation of the site's suitability for a waste-recovery facility.

In a recent interview, Notre president Gordon McGuinty told Northern Ontario Business that he expects to begin the preliminary environmental assessment work early this fall and complete hydrology studies by the end of the year.

Under Notre's proposal, the site will accept up to 25 per cent of Toronto's solid waste, which will be transported to the site by the Ontario Northland Railway.

Notre will construct a $21-million facility near the mine. The price tag includes improvements to the infrastructure and a railway unloading plant.

In addition, the proposal calls for contributions to local economic development and educational funds and the construction of both a greenhouse and a methane recovery plant. The two projects carry price tags of $3 million and $20 million respectively.
