City to Build Four New Recycling Centres

December 10, 2012 12:40 PM | News

The City of Winnipeg is building four “Community Resource Recovery Centres” over the next two years to handle materials that can be resold, recycled, composted or reused.

The centres will handle bulky waste, household hazardous waste, construction materials, wood, metals, electronic waste and yard waste.

One centre will be built in each quadrant of the city. The first two centres will be built at Pacific Avenue, just west of McPhillips Street, and at the Brady Road Resource Management Facility at a cost of $7.2 million. Sites for the remaining two centres (east and west areas), have not yet been selected. Each centre will keep up to 10,000 tonnes of material out of the landfill each year.

Funding for all four centres will come from the 2013 capital budget and 2014-2018 capital budget forecast.
