About Us

LCCW formed in the autumn of 2010 over concerns of a large-scale fill operation on Lakeridge Road in the Township of Scugog. Through door knocking, presentations to local councils, and a public meeting, it brought the issue of soil dumping to local attention. Since then, LCCW has taken part in a legal challenge and an Environmental Review Tribunal, given over 30 deputations to councils in the GTA and beyond, met with MPPs and various Provincial Ministry staff, and worked with other citizens’ groups for better regulation of soil dumping throughout Ontario.

LCCW has over 100 members and has earned a place on the Mayor’s New Year’s honour roll. LCCW is also a recipient of the 2013 Environmental Achievement Award in Durham Region.
