Reporting requirements under the Excess Soil Regulation are back in effect

As of January 1, 2023, the mandatory registration and notice filing requirements under Ontario’s Excess Soil Regulation that were paused in April 2022 are back in effect.

Construction and development Project Leaders and Operators/Owners of soil Reuse Sites and Residential Development Soil Depot sites are required to register and file notices about how they reuse and dispose of excess soil in Ontario through RPRA’s Excess Soil Registry.

If you have questions about using the registry, visit our training materials webpage where you will find a suite of resources designed to help you navigate the registry and complete notice filings.
