In 2019, the CSRD hired Golder Associates Ltd., an environmental engineering firm specializing in landfill design and management, to provide the following documents for the Golden Landfill:
These documents were submitted to the Ministry of Environment for approval. The CSRD received the Ministry's approval with conditions on May 4, 2020.
The CSRD intends to host a public meeting upon receiving approval of the documents. The purpose of the meeting will be to share the plans with the public, provide the public with alternatives to the existing Golden Landfill and conduct a general Question and Answer session with the regulators and CSRD.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, a meeting is still planned but will not be held until it is deemed safe to do so. The public will be advised through our website and social media platforms when a decision on a meeting date has been confirmed.
