On December 12, the City of Guelph, Ontario announced that it awarded RRT Design & Construction (RRT) a contract to provide engineering, procurement and construction services for major modifications to Guelph’s Material Recovery Facility (MRF). This automated facility will process 44,000 tons per year, incorporating RRT’s extensive experience demonstrated at facilities throughout Canada and the U.S. Construction is scheduled to begin in the second quarter of 2003.
In 1995, Guelph implemented a two-stream wet and dry curbside collection and processing program. After a comprehensive review in 2000-2001, it was concluded that although the wet side of the program had been successful, the now out-dated dry facility equipment was no longer meeting the needs of the city.
(See "Guelph Wet-Dry Efficiency Examined" in the February/March 2000 edition.)
