NextUse applies to build $30M recycling plant in Metro Vancouver
Coquitlam project would create up to 80 new jobs and increase material recovery from waste.
VANCOUVER — NextUse Recycling Ltd. has applied to Metro Vancouver for a license to build and operate a $30 million material recovery and recycling facility.
The license application is supported by the City of Coquitlam.
NextUse’s facility would create up to 80 new green jobs using advanced technology to recover useable, recyclable and compostable material from the waste stream.
It would be built in south Coquitlam, BC and have the capacity to handle approximately 26% of Metro Vancouver’s municipal solid waste.
The company is also looking at building a facility in the Fraser Valley Regional District. An operation near completion in Vancouver will have the capacity to process 600,000 tonnes of waste.
NextUse Recycling Ltd. is an affiliate of Belkorp Environmental Services Inc., a developer of recycling and resource recovery businesses.
