Regional Council awarded a 20-year contract for
waste disposal services to Waste Management of
Canada Corporation (WMCC) for a term of 20 years
effective July 1, 2007, at an estimated total
cost of $145 million.
Regional Council will also enter into an agreement
with WMCC for the collection of municipal waste,
organics, yard waste and recyclables in the Cities
of Brampton and Mississauga for a term of 10 years,
effective April 1, 2006, at an estimated total
cost of $412 million.
Negotiations with WMCC have resulted in an offer
to provide an opportunity to access Ontario based
landfill disposal capacity with no minimum tonnage
requirements. Further, WMCC has offered alternate
landfill disposal capacity on a contingency basis
in the event of a border closure prior to the
expiry of the Region's existing disposal contract.
