Ontario has over 800 small landfills in operation, and more than 1,500 closed landfills, which are mostly owned and managed by smaller municipalities. OWMA is providing a unique two-session virtual workshop covering all aspects of small landfills. The upcoming workshop, which will take place on October 20 and 27, will focus on responsible waste management and environmental protection for these sites, recognizing small municipality constraints.
The workshop is being conducted by sector and technical specialists from R. J. Burnside & Associates Limited. Burnside has a long history of supporting landfill owners and operators with direct technical assistance and educational training.
The workshop is designed for both those that manage and operate the landfill and those senior managers or politicians responsible and accountable for landfill operations. These two sessions are connected and will provide participants with the ‘need to know’ information about small landfills in today’s world.
Workshop Session 1: Small Landfill Operations/Management
This session covers important operating requirements for those that supervise landfill staff (i.e., scale and equipment operators). The session will address the primary issues and considerations for landfill operations recognizing that many landfill supervisors also have other responsibilities.
Workshop Session 2: Responsibility/Accountability for Decision Makers
This session is intended to provide context for landfill operational requirements, considering environmental management, budgets, and longer-term planning. It is intended for decision makers and those providing the background information necessary to make high level or strategic decisions.
