Ontario could see increase in aggregate recycling
Ontario’s public works projects could involve more recycled aggregates if a new bill promoting aggregate recycling passes the the Legislative Assembly of Ontario.
The Private Member’s Bill, known as Bill 56 or The Aggregate Recycling Promotion Act, recently passed a second reading in the Legislature, Aggregate Recycling Ontario announced.
The bill, by Dufferin-Caledon MPP Sylvia Jones, would require public agencies to not rejects bid from a contractor strictly based on a proposal to use recycled aggregates. The legislation also requires municipalities that prefer to use primary aggregates from pits and quarries to provide solid reasoning why they have not considered recycled aggregates.
The bill is designed to encourage municipalities and public agencies to increase their usage of recycled aggregates in construction projects.
