ON Point Radio: Canada Fibers Discusses Blue Box Contamination

Canada Fibers’ Mark Badger joined Alex Pierson on ON Point to discuss challenges that Ontario’s recycling industry is facing as contamination levels rise and market conditions tighten.


“The Blue Box program here in Ontario has been a great success story. Today, there are 900,000 tonnes a year of valuable material diverted from landfill… But we’re at a crossroads. The level of contamination in Blue Boxes is rising dramatically – hoses, wires, clothing, even food scraps.” – Mark Badger, Executive Vice President, Canada Fibers Ltd.
