Construction of an Important Sorting Centre for Valoris
In partnership with the City of Sherbrooke and the MRC du Haut-Saint-François, Bury’s eco-industrial park, Valoris, announced the construction of a regional sorting centre to be built in 2013 and operational by 2014.
This new project will generate around 30 new jobs in the Bury region.
The new sorting centre will have the capacity to receive and treat 100,000 tons of waste each year. Starting in 2013, the City of Sherbrooke will send its waste to the new centre.
The sorting centre aims to respect the Québec Residual Materials Management Policy as well as the commitment not to bury more than 40,000 tonnes of final waste per year.
According to Mr. Serge Forest, President of Valoris, the sorting centre “will enable us to recover up to 60% of the waste treated there”, as recommended by the Québec Residual Materials Management Policy.
Valoris will treat residential, industrial, commercial and institutional waste as well as construction, renovation and demolition waste.
