1 Central Newfoundland Solid Waste Management Authority MNL SYMPOSIUM May 8, 2008 Edward Evans Executive Director

2 Government of Newfoundland & Labrador Waste Management Strategy 2002 Divert 50 percent of the materials currently going to disposal by 2010 Reduce the number of waste disposal sites by 80 per cent Eliminate open burning at disposal sites by 2005 Phase out the use of incinerators by 2008 Phase out use of unlined landfill sites by 2010 Full province-wide modern waste management by 2010.

3 2002 Terms of Reference Scope of Work Waste Audit Determine size of the Region Identify Solutions

4 2002 – Phase I Apply for and administered funds to complete Study Went to tender and Bae NewPlan was successful candidate Completed work in Phase I Presented Draft Study Report to Communities

5 Study Area Boundary 50 – Towns, 38 – LSDs, 19 – Unincorporated Areas

6 2003 - Terms of Reference Phase II Investigation of Landfill Alternatives Investigation of Local Waste Management Facility Options Investigation of Materials Recovery Facility and Composting Facility Alternatives Construction and Demolition Alternatives Conceptual Design of the Regional Waste Management System Develop Tipping Fee Determine Close Out Requirements for all Existing Waste Disposal Sites

7 Key Components of Waste Management Source separation Collection Local waste management facilities (LWMF) Material Recovery Facility (MRF) Compost facility Construction & Demolition Debris facility Household Hazardous Waste facility Second generation Landfill (lined landfill)

8 Source Separation – Two Bag (wet/dry) efficient single-pass collection (lower collection costs) the production of compost; the stabilization of Wet waste residue; the inability to hide unacceptable wastes (e.g. HHW, yard waste) in transparent bags. compost carts not required less education of the public required (sorting is simpler) control of recovery rates occurs at the facility instead of in the home or curb, providing the flexibility to respond to market demands Advantages

9 Transportation Analysis Centroid
