Will garbage or recycling be processed or sorted at these facilities?

Garbage and blue box recycling taken to the facility will be transferred from our collection trucks into larger trailers for processing/disposal outside of the County. Funding for the MMF is contingent, however, on a recycling sorting facility (a Materials Recovery Facility or MRF) potentially being developed here in the future. This has been considered in the anticipated footprint for the Environmental Resource Recovery Centre. Organics accepted in the County’s green bin program and potentially leaf and yard waste, pet waste, diapers, and sanitary products will be processed into products such as compost or fertilizer.
