Film Plastics Recycling Project

The Municipality of Brockton is committed to maximizing the lives of its landfill site as a way of reducing landfill costs and enhancing protection of the environment. To that end, Brockton continues to develop new landfill diversion programs that preserve landfill capacity while ensuring diverted materials are routed to the appropriate recycling and reuse programs. Recent diversion and recycling programs have included e-waste; styrofoam; clamshell plastics; used clothing; agricultural bale wrap; additional scrap metal depot; binder deconstruction; landfill reuse trailer and mattress deconstruction. All of these programs have been widely embraced by the public and have resulted in a significant diversion of materials from local landfills. This report will briefly profile Brockton’s new pilot project, designed to collect and recycling film plastics. The report is authored by Grey Bruce Sustainability Network with financial assistance from Bruce Power.
