The Canadian Government is investing up to $1.4 million and $10 million to support Redcliff Cypress Regional Waste Management Authority and PurEnergy Inc.’s waste emissions reduction initiatives.

“By working with organizations across Canada such as Redcliff Cypress Regional Waste Management Authority and PurEnergy Inc., we can help communities grow their economies, all while fighting climate change,” said Francis Drouin, parliamentary secretary to the minister of agriculture and agri-food.

Redcliff Cypress Regional Waste Management Authority, in Redcliff, Alberta, will reduce carbon dioxide and methane emissions by diverting organic waste from a landfill with the help of a compost treatment facility. Throughout the course of this project, Redcliff Cypress Regional Waste Management Authority will see a cumulative reduction of about 77,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions, equivalent to removing approximately 23,600 cars off the road for an entire year. Redcliff Cypress Regional Waste Management Authority is also contributing up to $2.5 million to support this project.
