The City of Guelph will now send its waste to the Greenlane Environmental Landfill in St. Thomas, Ontario starting this year. After 40 years of operation, the Eastview Landfill in Guelph is approaching its capacity and is set to close in the next two years.
Greenlane’s was one of four bids received by the city. Its cost of $43.90 per tonne was preferred over Canadian Waste ($46.24), Onyx Arbor Hills, Michigan ($48.73), and Republic Services ($50.02). The contract — which runs for five years commencing in January 2003 — is for approximately 25,000 – 95,000 tonnes of waste from a transfer station adjacent to the Guelph Wet-Dry plant.
