City of Toronto purchases Green Lane Landfill Possession set for March 2007
The City of Toronto signed a purchase agreement late last night with Green Lane Landfill for $220 million. The City will take possession of the landfill in late March 2007.

The purchase provides the City with a reliable and environmentally sound landfill, giving the City options for short and long term waste disposal. With an aggressive diversion plan, the purchase provides Toronto with a disposal capacity of 13 million tonnes for a minimum of 15 years. The Green Lane Landfill has been in operation since 1978 and has received provincial approval for expansion and has passed the required environmental assessment.
