The closure of the Marine Avenue Old Incinerator Site and the build out of a state-of-the-art Resource Recovery Centre (RRC) and Transfer Station are key components in the region’s Solid Waste Management Plan (SWMP). The RRC and Transfer Station at the site will facilitate a one-stop drop that will bring our region closer to Zero Waste. Approximately 8 acres of land adjoining the RRC site will be available for public amenity/uses limited to parking, active transportation corridor (trails) and botanical garden/s. For more information regarding any one of these opportunities, please contact the City planning department at 604 485-6291. Please note that the RRC site and adjoining land is closed to the public. Any questions should be directed to email@example.com.
Individuals, groups, organizations, or companies interested in sharing their ideas for diverting waste materials through the Resource Recovery Centre site (wood waste, glass, rubble, fabrics, furniture, etc.) can contact Let’s Talk Trash at firstname.lastname@example.org.
