Effective immediately and until further notice the conversion of the community hospital in Wolseley will take place. To enable this conversion, the emergency department in Wolseley will now be temporarily CLOSED effective Thursday May 14, 2020. By converting the purpose of Community hospitals in some of our communities we can protect our most vulnerable populations.

TOWN OF WOLSELEY
PUBLIC NOTICE
WOLSELEY LANDFILL CHANGES

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT, effective June 1, 2018 all Construction Demolition materials will no longer be accepted at the Wolseley Landfill, until further notice. It is the responsibility of those (i.e. contractors and residents) to find alternative methods of proper disposal of these materials.

This decision is directly related to current waste disposal cell capacity and changing regulations at the Ministry of Environment (“MoE”). The MoE no longer permits, authorizes or approves the construction of any new waste disposal cells in the province unless they are engineered and constructed to best management practices. The Town of Wolseley will assess and investigate different options to come to a resolution for the Wolseley Landfill.

Dated this 18th day of May, 2018
Signed: Candice Quintyn, CAO


**  CONTRACTOR NOTICE **

As per Resolution No. [397/17] at the October 18th regular meeting of Council, we are advising Contractors that effective January 1, 2018, the
Town of Wolseley Landfill will no longer be accepting shingles.

This decision was based on the fact that shingles are taking up too much space. Council therefore wishes to extend the useful life of the Wolseley Landfill, by discontinuing the acceptance of shingles.

Alternative options are available are contacting neighbouring communities who may still accept shingles, or contacting a waste disposal company to supply and place a large disposal bin at the job site.

We thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
