Brooks Road Landfill
2011 Compliance Report

Introduction

GENIVAR Inc. has prepared the following 2011 Annual Compliance Report, on behalf of Brooks Road
Environmental Limited, the operator of the Brooks Road Landfill Site (Site), formerly the Edwards Landfill
Site. The Site is an approved waste disposal facility operating under Provisional Certificate of Approval for
a Waste Disposal Site No. A110302 dated May 5, 2004 (plus amendments to July 30, 2007) and
Amended Certificate of Approval for Industrial Sewage Works No. 8371-6X9L6B dated February 20, 2007
(Sewage Certificate of Approval). Copies of the Certificates of Approval are included in Appendix A.
This report is structured according to the new Ministry of the Environment Monitoring and Reporting for
Waste Disposal Sites, Groundwater and Surface Water Technical Guidance Document (November 2010).

1.1

Location

The Site is located at 160 Brooks Road in Cayuga, Ontario, which is approximately one kilometre north of
Kings Highway No. 3 (Talbot Road). The Site is legally described as Part of Lot 24, Concession I-N.T.R.,
of the former North Cayuga Township, former Regional Municipality of Haldimand-Norfolk, and now
Haldimand County.
The total Site area is approximately 12.4 hectares (ha) (30.6 acres) of which 6 ha (15 acres) is currently
approved for landfilling. The regional Site location is provided on Figure 1. The local Site setting is shown
on Figure 2.
The Site is bounded to the north by the former Canada Southern Railway right-of-way. The section of
right-of-way between Brooks Road and east to Windecker Road was acquired by the former owner of the
landfill, Haldimand-Norfolk Sanitary Landfill Inc. (HNSL), in 2006. To the north of the former rail right-ofway, a privately-owned rural property consisting of undeveloped fields (i.e., long-term inactive agricultural
crop production lands) and forested areas is present.
To the south and east of the Site is a privately owned undeveloped rural property used primarily for
passive livestock pasture purposes and consisting of a combination of old fields and forested areas.
The Site is bounded to the west by Brooks Road. On the west side of Brooks Road is an undeveloped
rural property owned by the Cayuga Uplands Game Farm. This property is privately owned and is
understood to be stocked for bird hunting purposes. The property itself is characterized primarily by
undeveloped fields with occasional bush lots.

1.2

Ownership and Key Personnel

In 2011, Brooks Road Landfill was in receivership, managed by SF Partners Inc. and operated by
2274462 Ontario Limited. Beginning April 30, 2012 Brooks Road Environmental Limited became the
operator of the Brooks Road Landfill Site. GENIVAR Inc. (GENIVAR) was retained by 2274462 Ontario
Limited and, subsequently, by Brooks Road Environmental Limited to manage the compliance monitoring
and reporting for the Site.
The key personnel and their respective contact details are included in Table 1-1, below.
