146. Section 55 of the Environment Quality Act (chapter Q-2) relating to the authorization requirement set out in section 22 of the Act does not apply to remote landfills to which Division 6 of Chapter II applies. Despite the foregoing, the operator is required, before establishing or altering such a landfill, to give notice in writing of the establishment or alteration to the Minister and the regional county municipality in which the landfill is situated, or the local municipality in which the landfill is situated if the territory of the local municipality is not within the territory of a regional county municipality. The notice must specify where the landfill is situated and indicate the number of persons the landfill is to serve on a yearly basis or provide the data necessary to enable the equivalent of that number to be determined.
Likewise, the provisions of section 55 do not apply to a transfer station referred to in the second paragraph of section 139.2. In such a case, the operator must notify in writing the Minister and the regional county municipality with an indication of the location of such a station, the weekly quantity of residual materials that will be transferred at the station and the user community concerned.
