The governments of Nunavut and Manitoba are providing funding for a study that may be the start of a new northern metal recycling program. The study will use the communities of Churchill, Gillam and Garden Hill, Manitoba and Rankin Inlet, Nunavut as case studies to establish how feasible it is to recover scrap metal and other materials from secluded northern rural areas. Winnipeg’s Earthbound Environment will conduct the study, which will conduct an inventory of scrap metal and other recyclable materials in those communities. The study will also assess the materials present and modes of transportation to set up a model that will allow isolated northern communities, which get most of their products shipped to them in barges, trains or winter roads, to set up effective recycling programs.
