MRF Regionalization & Transfer Station Construction

Projects Description

Simcoe County and the adjoining communities of Barrie and Orillia combined produce over 40,000 tonnes of recyclables annually. The MIPC Provincial Infrastructure Study recognizes the need for a mrf or transfer station in this area. The CIF has provided $2,150,000 (47% of blue box related project costs) in funding towards construction of a new facility to be used by the three communities. Construction of a transfer station is expected to cost approximately $8.6 million and will have a payback period of under 6 yrs.
