Program or Service Description:
The Waste Management Projects Regulation (O. Reg. 101/07) requires that both public and private sector waste management projects be equally subject to the requirements of the Environmental Assessment Act (EAA). The regulation designates certain waste management projects, exempts others, and exempts certain projects if they successfully complete the Environmental Screening Process (ESP). The level of assessment for each category is dependent on the anticipated environmental effects.
The public may request that a waste project subject to the ESP be elevated to an individual environmental assessment. Should a request be submitted, the Director has 30 days to make a decision on the submission.
We are committed to the OPS service principles (i.e., accessible, responsive, reliable, caring, accountable; consistent, predictable, transparent, continuous improvement) and OPS common service standards (i.e., response times to general phone calls, mail, email, fax) as outlined in the ministry's service charter.
