Excess Soil Management Regulation
Compliance standards dictated by the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change (MOECC)
The proposed Excess Soil Management Regulation will define “excess soil” as excavated soil that leaves a project area (a construction or development site). Excess soil will be designated as waste from the time it leaves a project area, and would remain a waste until:
- It is deposited at a final receiving site that is not a waste disposal site and that is governed by a site-specific instrument or by-law;
- It is deposited at an infrastructure project, if it originates from an infrastructure project belonging to the same proponent; or
- It is deposited at a receiving site that is not a waste disposal site and that is not governed by a site-specific instrument or by-law, so long as:
- The excess soil is appropriate based on MOECC’s excess soil reuse standards;
- The excess soil has been used for one of the specified uses, subject to certain restrictions;
- The receiving site is not being used primarily for the purpose of depositing excess soil.

Reduce risk and liability, track everything
The New Excess Soil Regulation will put significant risk on the owners of projects. With SoilFLO if a contaminated load was dumped, you will know exactly who dumped it.
