First Nations Landfill Operations and Maintenance Course, Location has changed


Update (01/09/2012): The OFNTSC Landfill Operations & Maintenance Course originally scheduled for Jan. 24-25, 2012 in Sudbury has been moved to Rama First Nation (dates remain the same).

The meeting will be held at the "MASK" Mnjikaning Arena Sports Key located at 6147 Rama Road in the upstairs Community Room. 

Hotel accommodations are at the Days Inn located on Rama Road (across from Casino Rama). Room and tax will be paid for directly by OFNTSC for confirmed participants. OFNTSC will be providing the hotel with a master list so you won't need to call to register.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided during the course. The First Nation/Tribal Council will be reimbursed for all other meals, incidentals per overnight stay, and travel using OFNTSC rates.
For those interested in the tour of the Sudbury MRF, this is still being planned for those First Nations participating in the Sudbury Area First Nations Recycling Evaluation Project.
Sorry for any inconvenience this change has caused.

The OFNTSC is pleased to announce we will be facilitating a two day course on First Nations Landfill Operations and Maintenance at Rama First Nation. 


The Landfill Operations and Maintenance Course is intended for First Nations public works managers, landfill supervisors, solid waste managers. 25 spaces are only available  for this course. The Landfill Operations and Maintenance Course will cover the following topics over the two day course:

•           How a natural attenuation landfill works

•           Contamination pathways and risk assessment

•           Landfill siting best practices

•           Landfill design features

•           Managing the fill area

•           Monitoring and reporting

•           Operations and maintenance

•           Setting goals for your landfill

•           Landfill site evaluation

•           Waste diversion opportunities

The course will also include a tour of a local landfill. Participants will also receive a Landfill Operations and Maintenance Manual which can be customized to take back and use in your community. 

Registration is free for confirmed participants and the OFNTSC will be directly covering hotel accommodations and lunches during the workshop. Other expenses such as travel, breakfast, dinner, and incidentals will be reimbursed to First Nations/ Tribal Councils at OFNTSC rates.

Further information including the detailed agenda will be emailed to confirmed participants. To find out more please contact Stephanie Allen at 416 651 1443 ext. 243 or by email at
