Community fighting Taggart-Miller mega landfill

Residents are fighting a proposal by Taggart-Miller to build a 400-acre landfill and recycling facility near the rural Ottawa town of Carlsbad Springs.

If greenlighted, the Capital Region Resource Recovery Centre (CRRRC) would accept over 1000 tonnes of Ontario garbage daily, including industrial, commercial and contaminated waste. The concerns of residents include water contamination and devaluation of properties.
