Waste Management to Build Single-Stream Recycling Facility in Ontario

Waste Management Inc. will build a single-stream recycling facility in Cambridge, Ontario.

The Houston-based Waste Management said in a news release the facility will be able to process up to 550,000 metric tons a year. It is scheduled to begin operations this fall, with an expected cost of approximately $30 million. The company will retrofit an existing plant, which will cover 126,000 square feet.

Waste Management said the operation will create 80 jobs and could employ more as recycling volumes grow.

The Cambridge plant will use advanced technology including magnets, screens and optical scanners to separate, sort and process a variety of materials.

 “This project is one of several being undertaken by Waste Management in Ontario as part of the company’s broad investment in new technologies to better manage waste for its resource potential,” said Brad Muter, Waste Management’s vice president for eastern Canada.
