The City of Brandon Material Recovery Facility is located at the Eastview Landfill Site at 765 33rd Street East. This facility has been in operation since 2003 and has been operated by the City of Brandon since 2014.
In 2015 over 7.5 million kgs of recyclable materials were delivered to the facility by either City collection crews or by commercial customers of the facility. This facility is considered a single stream facility as all materials; paper, fibers, plastics, metals and other containers are mixed in a single collection truck rather than being sorted at the curb into different compartments within the truck.
The facility is operated by a staff of four people who sort the materials into four (4) basic categories.
Each of the three (3) recyclable material categories are sorted, baled and then loaded on trailers where they are either marketed or are transported to another MRF where the comingled materials are sorted into specific commodities and then sold to processors who convert the product back into raw materials
At certain points in the process each item you recycle is turned into something new. See below what each items may become.
Tetra Pak’s are made up of paper, aluminum lining, and a plastic coating.
These materials are recycled separately, but using the same processing steps.
Placing unacceptable materials in the recycling cart negatively impacts the recycling process as these must be removed at the processing facility. It's far easier, and less costly, if we all do our part to ensure that we are only placing acceptable materials into the recycling cart.
Some examples of contaminated recycling are as follows:
To make a more informed decision on what you should and should not place in your recycling cart (blue lid) please check out the waste wizard. If the item you are checking does not come up in your search please contact the Sanitation Section by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 204-729-2281.
