The disposal of or permission to dispose of such soils on or in land to be used for housing is also prohibited.
The prohibition referred to in the first paragraph does not apply where soils are disposed of
(1)  on or in the site of origin;
(2)  on or in the site of the source contamination activity; or
(3)  on or in sites other than those referred to in subparagraph 1 or 2 and that are used
(a)  for the redevelopment and restoration of a quarry in accordance with the Regulation respecting sand pits and quarries (chapter Q-2, r. 7.1);
(b)  for reclamation purposes in connection with a project where the disposal is authorized by the Minister under subdivision 1 of Division II of Chapter IV of Title I of the Environment Quality Act (chapter Q-2).
The prohibition provided for in the second paragraph does not apply where soils are disposed of
(1)  on or in the sites referred to in subparagraph 1 or 2 of the third paragraph; or
(2)  on or in sites other than those referred to in subparagraph 1 of the third paragraph and that are used as backfill in connection with land rehabilitation work in accordance with the Environment Quality Act (chapter Q-2), and if their contaminant concentration is equal to or lower than the contaminant concentration in the host soils.

4. The disposal of soils containing contaminants in a concentration lower than the limit values in Schedule I is prohibited on or in soils having a contaminant concentration lower than the contaminant concentration in the soils disposed of.
In addition, the soils may not be disposed of on or in land to be used for housing unless the soils are used as backfill in connection with land rehabilitation work in accordance with the Environment Quality Act (chapter Q-2) and the contaminant concentration in the soils is equal to or lower than the contaminant concentration in the host soils.
This section does not, however, apply to soils disposed of on the site of origin or soils disposed of on the site of the source contamination activity. It does not apply either to soils containing contaminants naturally present or originating from human activity in a concentration lower than or equal to the limit values in Schedule I to the Land Protection and Rehabilitation Regulation (chapter Q-2, r. 37) and used for the reclamation and restoration of a quarry in accordance with the Regulation respecting sand pits and quarries (chapter Q-2, r. 7.1).
