And whereas, the Applicant has requested that Council of The Regional Municipality of Peel indicate by resolution its support for the construction and operation of the Project on the Lands;

And whereas, pursuant to the EFWSOP Rules, Version 1.0, Applicants are required to demonstrate the support of the Municipalities in which the Project is located in order to meet the Eligibility Requirements;

And whereas, this resolution's sole purpose is to enable the Applicant to meet the Eligibility Requirements of EFWSOP and may not be used for the purpose of any other form of municipal approval in relation to the Application, Project or Lands or any other purpose;

Therefore be it resolved, that the Council of The Regional Municipality of Peel supports the construction and operation of Project on the Lands;

This item was dealt with under Resolution 2015-740

Dan Labrecque, Commissioner, Public Works and Norman Lee, Director, Waste Management, highlighted the key areas and the proposed recommendations in the report listed as Item 6.1 from the October 8, 2015 Special Regional Council agenda: current and recommended 3Rs target rates; recycling and organics programs participation rates; infrastructure development plan; the Peel Energy Recovery Centre (PERC) Project, and proposed next steps.

Norman Lee cautioned that the data presented by the delegates might not be accurate. He suggested that should PERC proceed, an environmental assessment study would be conducted on air emissions, lifecycle assessments, GHG, human and health assessments, and that the delegates would have the opportunity to provide their comments to the Region of Peel. He stated that staff would report back to Regional Council before the Region makes the submission to the province.

Norman Lee noted that the Council of the City of Brampton submitted a letter, listed as Item 7.1 on the subject agenda, requesting Regional Council to defer the approval of the report recommendations outlined in Item 6.1 until the location of the PERC can be considered by Brampton Council. He suggested that Regional Council take into consideration approving some of the 3Rs target and deferring the balance of the report to a future meeting of Regional Council.

Councillor Palleschi sought clarification as to why a site in the Town of Caledon was not considered for a new Material Recovery Facility, Anaerobic Digestion Facility and Yard Waste Transfer Station.  Norman Lee responded that establishing facilities or transfer stations outside of the Cities of Brampton and Mississauga would entail building a new transfer station to accommodate a site outside of the two cities, and that transfer and haulage of material would add at least $20 per tonne to the cost.

Members of Regional Council expressed their concerns that Regional Council and staff cannot deal with any activity, action or plans related to PERC during the procurement process of the PERC project.

Councillor Palleschi stated that the City of Brampton Council adopted a resolution asking the Region of Peel to defer the approval of the PERC project and provide a presentation to the City Council. He urged Regional Council to support Regional staff recommendation with the proposed 3Rs target and the development of anaerobic digestion facility in Peel. However, Councillor Palleschi asked Regional Council to defer the approval of the entire PERC project; lift the restrictions to Regional Council and staff required by the procurement process, and, give opportunity for the three area municipalities to provide input to the project. He suggested that the four proponents be requested to delegate to a future meeting of the Waste Management Strategic Advisory Committee to give them the opportunity to present their proposals for the Committee's consideration.

Councillor Jeffrey noted the magnitude of the PERC project including its impact to the community and requested deferral of the project until the Brampton City Council has had the opportunity to review its implications to the environment and its residents.

Dan Labrecque clarified that Recommendations 1 and 2 related to the 3Rs target and the development of facilities and Recommendation 5 relates to the budget implications should the PERC project be approved.

David Szwarc, Chief Administrative Officer, suggested that Recommendations 3, 4, and 6 be deferred to a future meeting of Regional Council and that Recommendation 5 be referred back to staff to include portions of the recommendation for 2016 budget consideration.

Councillor Parrish requested a friendly amendment to Councillor Jeffrey's motion that the City of Mississauga Council staff be included in the discussion when the location of PERC will be considered.

Regional Council recessed at 11:40 a.m.

Regional Council reconvened at 11:50 a.m.

And whereas, the WMSAC asked Regional staff to provide a report back to Regional Council in the Fall of 2015 with detailed information on the status of the PERC project, the scope of the Request of Proposal (RFP) and cost information, the 3R's (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle) and that the report include pros and cons of the four sites considered for the PERC site and information as to how Regional staff selected the fourth site; and

And whereas, the Regional staff report for the Special Meeting recommends that the PERC be located at the Peel Integrated Waste Management Facility (PIWMF) site located on the property at 7795 Torbram Road, L6T 0B6 in the City of Brampton;

And whereas, the Regional staff report further recommends that previous directions in Regional Council Resolution 2013-576 be removed; that prequalified respondents be invited to propose alternative capacity facilities, that the facility be restricted to the acceptance of garbage originating in Peel Region and that proponents be permitted to propose alternative sites;

And whereas, the Region of Peel is required to provide a resolution of support from the municipalities where the PERC is located, being the Region of Peel and the City of Brampton, to meet the eligibility requirements under the Province of Ontario's Energy From Waste Standard Offer Program (EFWSOP) agreement with the Independent Electricity System Operator to sell the electricity generated by the PERC;

Therefore be it resolved, that Regional staff provide a presentation on the proposal to construct and operate the PERC to the City of Brampton Council at their next appropriate Corporate Services Committee meeting prior to Brampton Council's consideration of a resolution of support for the PERC;

Councillor McFadden arrived at 12:10 p.m.

In response to a question from Councillor Tovey, Norman Lee stated that should Council increase the 3Rs target to 75 per cent, staff would continue to recommend a 140,000 tonnes per year Material Recovery Facility but that expandability would need to be emphasized.

Norman Lee stated that should Regional Council adopt the 75 per cent 3Rs target, staff would report back to a future meeting of Regional Council with information on the implications of the higher target rate.

Councillor Carlson requested that the 2016 bi-weekly education campaign include the new 3Rs target and anaerobic digestion.

Dan Labrecque stated that any changes to the technology would be reported to Waste Management Strategic Advisory Committee.
