Landfill Facts

In 2018, Southwest Middlesex council made the decision to temporarily close Trillium Landfill and to permanently close Limerick Landfill.  The details of the actions and council's direction are outlined in the letter attached below.  To assist the public with key documents concerning this action, we have grouped them below the letter in chronological order, so that you do not have to look for them in our agendas, minutes and other posted documents.  Our intent is to make the inconvenience as short-lived as possible and we greatly appreciate your patience.
