Carlsbad Springs area poised to get $200,000 annually for hosting dump and recycling centre

The Carlsbad Springs area is poised to get $200,000 annually for the next 30 years for having a new dump and recycling facility near the east-Ottawa village, but the money isn’t quelling concerns in the community about potential health impacts.

A planning report recommending land-use changes to allow the Capital Region Resource and Recovery Centre, a joint venture between Taggart Investments and Miller Waste Systems, is going through the council approval process, although local politicians can’t do much about the project at this point. The Ontario Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change approved the waste facility last year, much to the disappointment of many in the community who don’t want a garbage facility to set up shop.
