Landfill Criteria For Municipal Solid Waste

June 1993

3.1 Sanitary Landfills

Sanitary Landfills are defined as disposal facilities which are normally, but not necessarily, located in areas serving populations of 5,000 or more people and which may accept all types of municipal solid wastes. Sanitary landfills are normally required to comply with all the criteria for landfill siting, design, operation and closure.

3.2 Modified Sanitary Landfills
Modified Sanitary Landfills are defined as disposal facilities which may accept all types of municipal solid wastes. These facilities are normally but not necessarily located in areas serving populations of fewer than 5,000 people where a regional or cooperative waste disposal system with neighbouring communities may not be practical or feasible.

5. Siting Criteria (M)
Landfill siting requires a detailed site location investigation which addresses all the issues outlined below and on Schedule 1, Table 1 which includes water contamination, air pollution, wildlife conflicts, as well as transportation, social and economic factors. The information provided in Table 1 is intended solely as guidance for proponents in their siting activities. Concerns associated with each of the broad categories of impact are presented along with the impacted receptor and exposure pathway. The landfill design, operation and closure requirements discussed in Sections 6, 7 and 8 provide additional constraints to the siting process.

7.6 Waste Measurement
The quantity of all wastes received at landfills which service a population of 5,000 or more or which receive more than 5,000 tonnes/year of waste should be measured by a method approved by the Manager. For municipal landfills serving a population greater than 10,000 or more or which receive greater than 10,000 tonnes/year and for all private landfills, weigh scales are recommended.

The federal government requires that weigh scales used to assess charges related to the weight of a commodity be accurate and sensitive to the range of weights being measured. A weigh scale accurate for measuring typical commercial waste vehicles and/or containers (loaded weight as well as tare weight) may not be accurate for measuring waste loads brought to the landfill in smaller vehicles such as pickup trucks and private automobiles. If fees are being contemplated for small loads, the accuracy of the scales for measuring these smaller weights should be confirmed with the federal department of Consumer and Corporate Affairs-Weights and Measures. Alternatively, charges for these loads could be based on typical load sizes according to type of vehicle rather than on a direct measure of weight.
