Ottawa Valley starts to sort out recycling woes Social Sharing

By Darren Major, CBC News Ottawa, July 9, 2019

Municipalities in the Ottawa Valley are trying to find places for their recycling after the abrupt closure of the Beaumen Waste Management Systems plant last month.

The municipalities of Renfrew, Arnprior and McNab/Braeside were considering a deal with a waste-management company based in Carleton Place.

Topps Environmental Solutions has offered to pick up roadside recycling for six months, with the option of extending the contract on a month-by-month basis while municipalities look at a possible longer term fix and prepare for regulation changes coming form the province.
