The City of Ottawa should pursue an appeal of a provincial decision that allows a private waste operator on Carp Road to receive construction debris from western Quebec, the city’s top lawyer says.

Rick O’Connor, the city’s solicitor and clerk, told council in a memo Thursday that he believes the city should ask to appeal the Ontario Ministry of Environment and Climate Change’s decision, which permits the West Carleton Environmental Centre operated by Waste Management to accept construction and demolition debris from some communities across the Ottawa River.
