Industrial Waste Works Facilities

An industrial waste works (IWW) facility is used for the collection, containment, storage, transmission, treatment or disposal of industrial waste. Private landfills, industrial landfills, and land farms require permits under The Environmental Management and Protection Act, 2010. These are IWW permits, which require financial assurance.

Municipal landfills that accept more than 20 per cent industrial waste also require IWW permits under The Environmental Management and Protection Act, 2010. Examples of IWW facilities include privately owned waste management facilities and facilities accepting industrial waste for disposal or treatment (e.g. contaminated soils). The Industrial Waste Construction guide provides more information about application requirements for constructing an IWW.

If you intend to operate an IWW facility in Saskatchewan, you must apply to the Ministry of Environment for a permit and develop and maintain an operations plan.
