What is a co-located facility?

During the siting process, the County’s consultant determined there was potential that both the OPF and MMF could be located on one common site and share infrastructure. This co-located facility, the Environmental Resource Recovery Centre, would include a building with areas for receiving garbage and recycling and truck servicing and, in addition, there would be an on-site area for processing of organics. There would be common administration space, shared scale facilities, and shared storage. As added benefit, this site could also house a Solid Waste Management truck servicing area, public education area, and a potential future Materials Recovery Facility (MRF).
