The Halton Waste Management Site opened in 1992 with a life expectancy of 20 years or until the year 2012. Due to the tremendous efforts of Halton residents using their Blue Box, GreenCart and diverting waste, the landfill life is now projected to the year 2040.
If all the initiatives in the 2012-2016 Solid Waste Management Strategy are successfully implemented, the landfill life will extend an additional 4 years. Our landfill is a valuable resource worth protecting!
