A little rain couldn’t keep the Ottawa community away on June 11 as families, councillors and even the mayor came out to celebrate the opening of Tomlinson’s new waste recovery centre in Carp.

Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson and Councillor Eli El-Chantiry joined Tomlinson CEO Ron Tomlinson and President Kevin Cinq-Mars in cutting the ribbon and introducing the new facility, which officially opened its doors this past May.

“Tomlinson is the epitome of a great local community-minded company that has been a national and international success,” said Mayor Watson at the event. “I just want to say thank you for doing this because we can’t keep burying our garbage.”

Mayor Watson and Councillor El-Chantiry then presented Tomlinson with a certificate on behalf of the city recognizing Tomlinson for the innovative centre. Also in attendance were numerous other Ottawa councillors, and MPPs, including Lisa MacLeod, Allan Hubley, Scott Moffatt and Marianne Wilkinson.

Attendees were then treated to a free barbeque lunch courtesy of the Centurion Conference & Event Centre, and Tomlinson staff volunteers were also on hand to help coordinate facility tours, hand out refreshments, and manage giveaways. Guests were invited to take home a Tomlinson Treeling, boast an environmentally-friendly temporary Tomlinson tattoo, and younger guests enjoyed taking turns leaping around in a bouncy castle.

“One of our core values at Tomlinson is to be environmentally conscious and find innovative solutions where others see barriers,” said Tomlinson President Kevin Cinq-Mars. “Through this centre, we are proud to take another step towards furthering our mission to provide world-class environmentally-friendly services to the Ottawa community and beyond.”

Located minutes from Kanata, the Tomlinson Waste Recovery Centre offers competitive rates, easy access for trucks, and requires no pre-sorting of materials. Open Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. to all members of the community, the centre is positioned to rapidly become eastern Ontario’s top waste recovery resource.
