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.
