The Ottawa Valley Waste Recovery Centre is a Municipal partnership between the Town of Petawawa, City of Pembroke, Township of Laurentian Valley (the host community), and Township of North Algona Wilberforce. Sebastopol Ward of the Township of Bonnechere Valley was an original partner but withdrew from the Centre January 1st, 2016 to pursue waste management options within their own Township.
The Centre is located at 900 Woito Station Road in the Township of Laurentian Valley. OVWRC opened in 2002 adjacent to the existing landfill site which has been operational since 1977. OVWRC provides waste processing services for the partner Municipalities as well as other Communities throughout Renfrew County.
Incoming materials are weighed and deposited at one of the Centre’s operating areas; Landfill, Construction and Demolition, Material Recycling Facility, Composting Facility or Hazardous & Electronic Waste Depot.
