Since then, the CDC has been working with FERPA in an effort to have the first Canadian FERPA facility built in Lac du Bonnet.
This facility would be the first of its kind in Canada and act as a pilot facility that would be used to showcase the process to other municipalities across the country. The method used by FERPA allows for the transformation of all Municipal Solid Waste. The FERPA Process allows items like food waste, single-use coffee cups, straws, plastic bags, dirty diapers, pet waste bags, bottles, paper, jars, PPE, Rubber, Leather, Clothing, yard waste and more to be transformed into repurposed products, keeping these items from accumulating in landfills and from harming the environment.
The Lac du Bonnet CDC gathered statistics and information from various sources and other municipalities to aid FERPA in deciding whether Manitoba would be a viable location for a FERPA facility. The CDC has provided information to local municipalities and organizations through presentations and has connected FERPA with several organizations and resources for its entry into Canada.
