This project involves the design and installation of three quality control stations in the Peel Region materials recycling centre. The new stations will allow Peel’s contractor to better control end product quality for the corrugated cardboard and baled materials streams (in particular aluminum) and reduce the loss of recyclables into the residue stream. The new stations are expected to reduce the amount of residue outbound in the recyclables streams by over 170 tonnes per year and capture an additional 1,700 tonnes of recyclables from the residue thereby reducing disposal costs and improving revenues. The project is expected to have a payback of approximately 2 years and received $172,232 in CIF funding representing 49% of project costs.
