Please be advised that effective Monday, April 9th, the Ottawa Valley Waste Recovery Centre will no longer be able to provide a revenue share on clean, source separated loads of cardboard. Designated loads of cardboard that were received prior to April 9th will be provided the revenue share rate as posted below.
You may have heard, through recent media coverage, about changes to worldwide recycling markets due to China’s Green Fence Policy. This policy restricts the import of paper and other recyclable material to China, causing the price received for these products to drop, in some cases as low as $0/tonne.
It is hoped that markets will recover and at that time, staff will review the cardboard revenue share program.
We thank you for your continued support of our recycling programs.
