Councillors on the city's rural affairs committee reluctantly approved a new landfill and recycling plant in rural east Ottawa Thursday, despite demands from nearby residents that a health impact study be conducted first.

The Taggart Miller facility on Boundary Road will process waste from the commercial, industrial, institutional, construction and demolition sectors. The proposed site, which would be named the Capital Region Resource Recovery Centre, would house a landfill plus composting and recycling facilities.
