Proposed Changes and Options

Terrapure is seeking approval to increase the capacity for solid, nonhazardous industrial residual material at the SCRF by 3,680,000 m3. Currently, the SCRF is permitted to received both industrial fill and residual material. Terrapure only accepts material that cannot otherwise be reasonably diverted.

Residual material is solid, nonhazardous material from commercial, industrial and institutional sectors.

Industrial fill is excess soil generated from construction activities, such as redevelopment of brownfield sites and infrastructure renewal projects.

Three of the options would replace industrial fill with residual material, allowing us to reach the ultimate capacity at the site sooner because the market rate for residual material is better and more consistent than industrial fill.

Current Approved Footprint

The currently approved footprint is included as part of the Environmental Assessment to represent what would happen if none of the six options were carried out. 

  • Current approved capacity is 6.32 million m3 of residual material and 2 million m3 of industrial fill 
  • Height (at peak) of 218.5 m 
  • Footprint of 59 hectares 
  • 30 m to the SCRF  property boundary on the north and west sides
  • Approximately 60 m to the south and 30 m to the east of the SCRF property boundary
  • The Heritage Green Community Trust would only continue to be funded for 2-4 more years

 

The Options

There are six options to accommodate the proposed capacity increase

  • Please provide your feedback on each option in the comment boxes on the right hand side of the page

Option 1 - Reconfigure: Return to the 1996 approved landfill footprint

What does this mean?

  • 2.5 million m3 increase in residual material capacity 
  • No height increase 
  • No change in footprint

Option 2 - Footprint Expansion: Expand footprint into existing buffer area

What does this mean?

  • 1.3 million m3 increase in residual material capacity
  • No height increase
  • Expand residual material
    area footprint, maintain
    minimum 30 m to SCRF
    property boundary

Option 3 - Height Increase: Increase height within existing footprint

What does this mean?

  • 3.68 million m3 increase in residual material capacity
  • Height increase of 12 m
  • No change in footprint



    Option 4 - Reconfiguration and Footprint Expansion: Replace industrial fill with residual material and footprint expansion into existing buffer area

    What does this mean? 

    • 3.5 million m3 increase residual material capacity
    • No height increase
    • Expand residual material area, maintain a 30 m minimum to the SCRF property boundary


    Option 5 - Reconfiguration and Height Increase: Replace industrial fill with residual material and increase height

    What does this mean? 

    • 3.68 million m3 increase in residual material capacity
    • Height increase of 2.5 m
    • Maintain current buffers

     

    Option 6 - Footprint Expansion and Height Increase
    Expand footprint and increase height

    What does this mean? 

    • 3.68 million m3 increase in residual material capacity
    • Height increase of 8 m
    • Expand residual material area, maintain a 30 m minimum to SCRF property boundary
