What are the construction time scales?

Work to prepare the site for development started in early 2019. This included the construction of a temporary laydown area and Northern Access road.

The delivery of the project will be carried out in three stages, to ensure the existing facility can continue to manage waste and prevent landfill.

  • Preparing the site for construction (2019)
  • Construction of the Resource Recovery Facility and EcoPark House (commencing 2021)
  • Construction of the Energy Recovery Facility and decommissioning of the existing plant at Edmonton EcoPark (commencing 2022)

We anticipate that the current facility will remain in operation until it is decommissioned in approximately 2026-2027.

The existing facility will be demolished, and the laydown area land will be returned to its previous condition.

These timeframes are also set out in our Project Timeline
