Phase 1

In the spring of 2018, 900 single family homes and 9 multi-family complexes will begin the curbside recycling program. Over a one year period, these residents will provide feedback to the City to help build a successfully city-wide program. 

Over the phase 1 period, a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) will be built at the City's Waste and Recycling Centre (landfill). This facility will be operational in time to manage the recyclables collected when city-wide implementation begins in 2019. 

A year-long phase 1 program will allow for the testing of the operation in all seasons and weather conditions. 

Phase 2

Phase 2 of the curbside recycling program will introduce the program to all single family homes and multi-family complexes. It will include the opening of the City's Materials Recovery Facility for the sorting and shipping of recyclable materials. Phase 2 is anticipated to being in the spring of 2019.
