Environmental Assessment and Related Documents

Taggart Miller Environmental Services, a joint venture of Taggart Investments Inc. and Miller Waste Systems Inc. (Taggart Miller), has completed the environmental assessment for a proposed integrated waste management project to be known as the Capital Region Resource Recovery Centre (CRRRC).


As required under section 6.2(1) of the Environmental Assessment Act and in accordance with the Terms of Reference approved by the Minister of the Environment on December 17, 2012, Taggart Miller has submitted its environmental assessment to the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change for review and approval.


As required pursuant to the Environmental Assessment Act, the environmental assessment will be available for public review and comment from January 2, 2015 to February 20, 2015.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
As part of Taggart Miller's commitment to keeping the public informed about the proposed facility, we have developed a series of answers for frequently asked questions. This list is updated regularly, so please visit the site often.
To see the list of FAQs, please click here.

 

Who we are
Taggart Investments Inc.
Taggart Investments Inc. is a highly regarded Ottawa-based family owned business which was founded in 1948. The organization has grown to consist of four major operating companies (Tamarack Homes, Doran Contractors, Taggart Realty Management and Taggart Construction Ltd.) employing over 350 staff and providing diversified services to a broad public and private sector client base.

Miller Waste Systems Inc.
Miller Waste Systems Inc. is part of The Miller Group, a privately owned diversified Canadian Company that since 1916 has provided the public and private sectors, in North America, with road construction and rehabilitation, waste management and recycling services, transit operations, and aggregate-based materials, asphalt, cement and ready-mix concrete products.  Formed in 1961 in Markham, Miller Waste Systems is a diverse waste management services provider in Ontario, Manitoba and the Maritimes, operates more than 450 collection vehicles and has over 850 employees. 

 

Purpose of the recycling facility
The primary focus of the proposed Capital Region Resource Recovery Centre (CRRRC) is resource recovery and diversion of materials away from disposal. To divert materials away from disposal as much as possible, Taggart Miller is committed to providing the industrial, commercial and institutional (IC&I) and construction and demolition (C&D) diversion capacity that is currently lacking in eastern Ontario.  Taggart Miller intends to build a state-of-the-art recycling facility for IC&I and C&D materials for residents and businesses in eastern Ontario. While every measure will be taken to recycle material, there will be a need for the disposal of residual and non-recyclable waste. We are proposing to provide this on site.

Environmental Assessment (EA) Process
The EA process begins with the developed of Terms of Reference which is essentially a document that outlines all the studies that will be undertaken during the EA. Following a second open house, this Terms of Reference will be submitted to the Minister of the Environment for review. Should the Minister approve the Terms of Reference, then the EA process and the associated studies will be carried out. Following this work, the EA report will be submitted again to the Minister of the Environment for review and a decision on whether the proposed will receive approval under the EA Act.
