Update - Waste Processing Plant on Coronation Drive
Coronation Organics withdrew their Environmental Compliance Approval applications submitted to the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks on February 24, 2021.
The company had proposed to construct and operate an anaerobic digestion/biogas creation facility that could have resulted in 100 heavy trucks per day driving through the Southeast Scarborough community. In addition, there were a number of environmental concerns related to noise and emissions from the facility.
While it’s possible that new applications may be submitted in the future, the Ministry has indicated that should the company wish to re-apply in the future, the Ministry will ensure that any proposal, similar or revised, involves sufficient consultation with the public and members of the community.
The West Rouge Community Association will continue to monitor this matter.

Coyotes live in cities throughout North America. It is typical to see a coyote in a park, ravine, other green space and even on your street, at any time of the day or night during all the seasons. Coyotes have adapted very well to life in the city. Food and shelter are plentiful and natural predators are limited, so these animals will continue to live near us.
