As the Yarmouth County Solid Waste Park continues to provide solid waste management services to the Town of Yarmouth and the Municipalities of Yarmouth and Argyle, they are pleased to announce their plan to continue to receive asbestos waste materials at their Municipal Solid Waste Management Park in South Ohio, NS.  The existing Asbestos Waste Disposal Facility is near capacity and a new disposal cell is needed to receive future asbestos waste materials that will be generated from building deconstruction projects in the local area.

This project is subject to provincial regulations under the Nova Scotia Environment Act.  An Environmental Assessment (EA) is required to fulfill the requirements for a Class I undertaking under the Environmental Assessment.
