Proposal details

This proposal is for an Environmental Compliance Approval (ECA) to GFL Environmental Inc. to develop and operate a waste transfer station at 112 Jones Road, Kenora, Ontario. 

GFL is proposing to develop and operate a non-hazardous solid waste transfer station on a property located at 112 Jones Road in Kenora, Ontario. The facility will receive up to a maximum of 2,500 tonnes per year of solid non-hazardous waste consisting of blue box recyclable waste generated by residential, industrial commercial and/or institutional sources.

GFL seeks approval for a maximum on-site waste storage of up to 50 tonnes at any time with all of the waste being stored indoors and/or outdoors within an enclosed transfer trailer. This proposal also seeks a limit of up to 50 tonnes of waste to be transported off-site each day.

The waste transfer station will receive waste from within the Province of Ontario and will operate 12 hours a day (7 a.m. to 7 p.m.) and five days a week (Monday to Friday). 

Facility operations will take place within a fabric cover building with poured concrete floor and lock block push walls. New access roads will be constructed to facilitate a two-way system coming into and leaving the facility. The waste transfer station facility is part of overall GFL operations at the site.
