Residents continue to oppose Taggart Miller project in Carlsbad Springs

By Brier Dodge, Ottawa Community News, December 8, 2017

Now that the province has approved the environmental assessment for the planned Capital Region Resource Recovery Centre in Carlsbad Springs, Taggart-Miller has gone to the city to ask for the necessary approvals to build it.

Taggart-Miller hosted a public meeting at the community centre in Carlsbad Springs on Dec. 7 to present details about the application, which residents have vocally opposed ever since the project was first pitched.

(...)The Carlsbad Springs site would have several recycling operations but also a landfill for waste that can’t be recycled. It would serve the industrial and commercial sectors, which Taggart said struggle to affordably meet recycling diversion rates of more than 15 per cent.
