ST. JOHN'S, Newfoundland — The Newfoundland Multi-Materials Stewardship Board (MMSB) has contracted C&D Recycling of Goodwood, Nova Scotia, to process approximately 2,000 metric tons of scrap tires into tire-derived aggregate (TDA).
The MMSB granted the contract to C&D in July after issuing a tender in April to a service provider to perform the work, according to MMSB Chief Executive Officer Mike Samson.
C&D will set up a mobile tire-shredding operation at Norris Arm, about 35 miles northwest of Gander International Airport, according to Mr. Samson. C&D will be paid $390,000, or $195 per ton, he said.
The shredding should be complete by this fall, Mr. Samson said, at which time the MMSB will begin to explore partnerships with engineers and contractors to demonstrate the use of TDA in small-scale civil engineering projects.
It isn't yet certain whether this contract will lead to a permanent TDA project in Newfoundland, he added.
