Project Update

This is to advise that on May 28, 2021, the Minister of Environment and Climate Change released a decision concerning his review of the proposed Waste Oil Recycling and Wastewater Treatment Facility. The Minister has determined that the registration information is insufficient to make a decision on the project, and additional information is required in accordance with clause 13(1)a of the Environmental Assessment Regulations, pursuant to Part IV of the Environment Act.


On April 8, 2021, Envirosoil Limited registered the Waste Oil Recycling and Water Treatment Facility Project for Environmental Assessment, in accordance with Part IV of the Environment Act.

The purpose of the proposed undertaking is to install and operate a facility that will be used for receiving, processing and recycling of waste oil and the treatment of waste waters. The origin of the waste oil and waste water will be primarily from commercial sources. Treated water will be discharged to the Halifax Regional Municipal sanitary sewer system and collected oil will be sent to approved facilities for reuse. The undertaking is at a commercial/industrial property at 750 Pleasant Street, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. The installation of processing and treatment equipment is anticipated to commence in Summer 2021 with commissioning and operation planned for Fall 2021.

Minister's Decision

On or before May 28, 2021, the Minister of Environment will decide if the project can be granted conditional environmental assessment approval.
