A facility that produces aggregate for the city of Edmonton, Alta. will remain open for a little while longer, council decided this week.
Edmonton recycles concrete and asphalt from household and private renovations, construction, and demolition projects at two sites, free of charge; those materials are then broken into aggregate to be used as a base layer for road construction and other building projects. In 2018, city councillors decided as part of greater waste strategy discussions to close the city-operated plants in favour of allowing private industry to provide the same services.
Ward Anirniq Coun. Erin Rutherford, who on Monday presented the motion to delay the plan, wants a full analysis of the operation before the plant and associated equipment is sold off.
