The province is allowing the operator of the city-owned Springhill landfill to accept more construction waste and stay open longer.

Tomlinson filed its application in 2014 and the Ontario Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change recently approved it.

Lee Timmins, Tomlinson’s manager of technology, landfills and regulatory affairs, said the company wanted to increase its maximum intake of construction and demolition waste because the province has been considering ways to divert more of the material from dumps. Most of the construction and demolition debris brought to Springhill, located in Metcalfe, is recycled.
