Proposed Waste Processing and Disposal Plant

A proposal has been received by the Province of Ontario to build a private waste processing and transfer plant, with a biogas anaerobic digestion system, located at 633 Coronation Drive.

 

If this proposal is approved, it would result in significant amounts of trucks filled with waste through our neighbourhood all day and night.

A petition has been started to oppose the plant. Click here to view the petition

The proposed operation will involve 20 times as many trucks as the proposal that was turned down by the Biosolids Environmental Assessment for the Highland Creek Waste Treatment Plant, and includes 2 anaerobic digesters, 11 natural gas boilers, one open air storage facility, and other waste processing and storage facilities. 

 

The City of Toronto currently collects 150,000 tonnes per year of residential and commercial green-bin organics which are processed at its Dufferin and Disco Road Plants. The Coronation Plant proposes to process up to 900,000 tonnes of wet rotting waste annually – 6 times as much as the entire City of Toronto.

The West Rouge Community Association has objected to the proposal individually and in coordination with the four Community Associations in Southeast Scarborough.

Automated Shuttle Trial in West Rouge

The City or Toronto, Toronto Transit Commission, and Metrolinx are working towards launching a trial public transit service to connect West Rouge residents to and from Rouge Hill GO station.

The temporary service would be provided using a small electric shuttle running a route set through residential streets not currently served by conventional transit. The shuttle would be an automated vehicle that is mostly self-driving with an on-board human attendant at all times.

Phase 1 of the Public Consultation Summary Report is now available.
