The Residual Waste Disposal Strategy will include expansion of the City's W12A Landfill. Key elements of the proposed expansion include:
- find solutions that will manage residual waste until 2049 (25 years beyond the current approved capacity of the W12A Landfill);
- allow neighbouring municipalities to use any new/expanded waste disposal facilities developed by the City, approved by the Province and under conditions approved by Municipal Council;
- place limits on the amount of Residual Waste that will be accepted at any new/expanded waste disposal facilities; and,
- commit to increasing the current London residential (household) waste diversion rate to 60% by 2022 from the current rate of 45%.
