The Ridge Landfill has successfully operated in its current location since 1966. Waste Connections of Canada (formerly Progressive Waste Solutions) acquired the facility in 2005. The existing landfill is anticipated to reach its approved capacity in 2021.
We have an environmental management system in place for the landfill that follows stringent Ontario Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks (MECP) regulations. We continuously review and update our operational programs in and around the landfill to ensure environmental protection and prevention of nuisance issues such as litter, birds, odour, dust and traffic from impacting our neighbours and the community.
We also work closely with the Ridge Landfill Liaison Committee and its members have been very helpful in providing us input on a wide range of operational and planning programs that we believe have improved the operation of the landfill.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call Andrew Cibulka or Marc Leduc at 519.676.5000.
