In 2010 Waste Management showed us their “Vision” for the new West Carleton Environmental Centre. Note they chose to show a closed landfill and a number of recycle facilities (very green).

Now that they have presented their plan to the City in a rezoning application we see that they only discuss the landfill with no reference to recycle facilities. This is a more likely vision of what things will look like.






So much for their Vision. What else have they said that we should take with a grain of salt?

Waste Management is Backtracking on its Diversion Commitments

Waste Management of Canada (WM) is reneging on its commitment to diversion and recycling operations at the proposed new West Carleton Environmental Centre (WCEC) on Carp Rd. These commitments include; a Material Recycling Facility; a Construction and Demolition Material Recovery Facility; a Residential Diversion Facility; an Organics Processing Facility; and an Electronic Waste Handling Facility.
