The Ministry of the Environment and Climate and Change is conducting consultations on a new policy for excess soil. The new policy is designed to achieve the following two objectives:
- Protect human health and the environment from the inappropriate relocation of excess soil; and,
- Enhance opportunities for the beneficial re-use of excess soil.
As part of its consultations MOECC has created a proposed Excess Soil Management Policy Framework and is inviting stakeholders to comment. MOECC will be accepting feedback until March 26, 2016. The full details of this consultation are available here.
