Opal have added their support to the Concerned Citizens request to have the EPA amended to prohibit new or expanded landfills on unsuitable sites. They also support an amendment that would prohibit a proponent from re-applying to establish or expand a landfill on or adjacent to a site that has previously been refused for environmental reasons.

Read their letter of support here: OPAL support of EPA amendments

They are also circulating a petition in support of this amendment. It will be presented to the Ontario Legislature. If you support these amendments please download the petition from: OPAL, provincial petition statement circulate for signature and return to:
