I found on the city of Hamilton website that there is a partner ship between the city of Hamilton and Hamilton Renewable Power INC they are taking waste from the glanbrook landfill.
"Landfill gas generation is a natural process that occurs in any landfill as solid waste decomposes. The gas, composed primarily of methane (50%) and carbon dioxide (50%), is produced when organic material breaks down in an oxygen free (anaerobic) environment.
The Glanbrook Landfill Gas to Energy (LFGTE) project is a partnership between the City of Hamilton and Hamilton Renewable Power Inc to collect landfill gas, generate electricity and sell to the Ontario grid.
The power plant will generate 26 million kilowatts-hours of electricity per year, which is equivalent of powering up to 2,100 homes. The LFGTE project will not only generate renewable electricity, but will also reduce greenhouse gas emissions and odours. The LFGTE project will reduce approximately 100,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent of emissions every year, which would otherwise be released to the atmosphere (in the absence of the project). This greenhouse reduction is equal to removing 18,000 vehicles from the road.
The commissioning or start up of the facility with actual generation of electricity is scheduled for summer 2008."(http://www.hamilton.ca/CityDepartments/PublicWorks/PW+Environment.htm)
