Plessisville, Quebec – Machinex representatives were proud to attend yesterday the official grand opening ceremony of the Waste Management recovery facility located in Laval alongside of the Quebec Minister of the Environment, Benoit Charrette, and Aaron Johnson, vice-president, Eastern Canada at Waste Management.

 Operating for the past few months, the new Waste Management material recovery facility can process up to 50,000 tonnes annually of recyclable material from the industrial, commercial and institutional sectors of the greater Montreal area and allows the recycling of cardboard, paper, plastic and metal.
