As part of its ‘Getting to 70 per cent Diversion’ Plan the City of Toronto is seeking to pre-qualify contractor/ technology vendor teams for the Design, Build and Operation (DBO) of a mixed waste processing facility capable of diverting at least 75,000 tonnes per year of residual municipal waste from landfill.
The City-financed facility will have a minimum 150,000 tonnes per year capacity and accept a combination of residual municipal waste generated from the City of Toronto and bio-solid waste from Toronto Water. Acceptable treatment solutions will utilize mechanical biological treatment (MBT) technologies, with a preference for front end mechanical sorting followed by Anaerobic Digestion (AD) with digestate curing to produce a Compost-Like Output (CLO) for subsequent beneficial end use.
The city has identified, and will make available to all bidders, a site on which to develop a facility adjacent to its Green Lane Landfill in the Township of Southwold, Ontario.
Respondents interested in being pre-qualified for the provision of this DBO Service should, in the first instance, access the project summary via the City of Toronto website at:
