The head of Orgaworld Canada says he’s always looking for new ways to strip more plastic out of the organic waste stream that arrives at his company’s processing plants as the City of Ottawa prepares to allow plastic bags in the green bin program.

“We’re just trying to stay out front of what the technology is,” general manager Michael Leopold said in an interview Monday. “A month doesn’t go by that I don’t look at some different technology of how you can pull that stuff out. Everybody’s got an idea (but it) doesn’t mean it works.”
