#376 MRF Residue Compactor Upgrade

Projects Description

Peel Region’s mrf was designed with a compaction system to handle mrf process residue.   Program growth has resulted in increasing volumes of residue that must be managed at the facility.  The current compaction system cannot keep up with facility production resulting in excess quantities of residue being hauled uncompacted to the adjoining TS.  Upgrading the compaction system will eliminate this double handling and allow Peel Region to divert additional material from expensive ‘after hours’ disposal options to a nearby residue recovery facility thereby improving their diversion rate.  The project is expected to cost approximately $256,000 with an anticipated payback of only one year.  The CIF will contribute 50% of total costs.
