The Coalition for Landfill Accountability (COLA) launched a new web site today at colaottawa.ca. The web site will be a resource for residents to learn about issues related to the expansion of the Carp Road landfill.
COLA is a group of nine community associations in Kanata, West Carleton and Stittsville. The group’s members include the Stittsville Village Association, and residents groups from Crossing Bridge, Fairwinds, Jackson Trails and Southwest Stittsville.
In late October, the City of Ottawa approved Waste Management’s site plan application for the landfill. The next step in the municipal approval process is to finalize Host Community Agreement that covers things like property value protection, traffic, and community compensation.
Waste Management still needs Environmental Compliance Approval from the Ontario Ministry of Environment before they can start operations.
