Edmonton Waste Management Centre
EWMC is the largest collection of modern, sustainable waste processing and research facilities in North America and the first of its kind. This includes the Greys Paper and Glass Recycling Facility—completed in 2012—that involves closed-loop recycling by processing the waste paper collected from City of Edmonton offices and selling the recycled paper products back to the City. The facility will have the capacity to process 40 metric tonnes per day (14,400 m. tonnes/yr).
The 233-hectare site is home to a number of integrated waste treatment plants, biosolids lagoons, a now closed landfill, as well as various state of the art training, research and operational facilities that receive, process, sort, compost and recycle residential, commercial and industrial wastes.
