Sale of Electricity from the Britannia Landfill Gas Recovery Project
 

Regional Council approved the sale of electricity generated by the Britannia Landfill Gas Utilization Facility to be used at the Region of Peel's Lakeview Wastewater Treatment Plant over a period of 20 years. The electricity would be sold at a rate of $65.55 per megawatt hour for the first five years and thereafter annually adjusted according to the Consumer Price Index for each of the additional 15 years.

The use of green power generated from landfill gas for treating the Region's wastewater is environmentally progressive in that it reduces the Region's reliance on fossil fuel based electricity and significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions from the Britannia Landfill.

 Human Services
Mandatory Use of Booster Seats for Children Aged 4-8 Years
 

Regional Council will request the Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) to amend the Highway Traffic Act to mandate that children 18kg (40lbs) to 27kg (60lbs) be required to use booster seats when travelling in motorized vehicles. This will be an effective way to protect children aged 4-8 years in the Region of Peel. Peel Health supports making the use of booster seats mandatory as part of the comprehensive prevention program.
