Development of a regional landfill is a multi-municipal initiative that began in 2013. The project was motivated by a need to replace municipal landfills that were reaching capacity or no longer meeting regulatory requirements with the Ministry of Environment (MOE). Nineteen (19) municipalities partnered in the Western Regional Landfill Inc. (WRLI) project, each contributing on a per capita basis.
Our Grand Opening was held on Wednesday, December 5, 2018
