Protest planned against proposed landfill in Carlsbad Springs

Expect to see picket lines if you're driving in the east end near Boundary Road Tuesday afternoon as community members are set to rally there to oppose plans to build a landfill there.

The Capital Regional Citizens Coalition for the Protection of the Environment is against the proposed landfill that would cover 400 acres and accept 450-thousand tonnes of waste each year.

The group argues there is no need for another such facility in Ottawa because the city already has excess landfill capacity.

The City owns two landfills, Trail Road and Springhill, and there are two privately owned and operated facilities, the BFI landfill and Orgaworld's green bin processing facility.

Taggart-Miller would be the company building and operating the site.
