A Montreal-based company has set the wheels in motion to bring a new recycling plant for used tires to the eastern Ontario town of Hawkesbury.

Ecolomondo, which specializes in recycling hydrocarbon waste, is working on a deal with Hawkesbury to build a 170,000-square-foot recycling plant, Radio Canada reported.

The company is still in talks with municipal authorities about acquiring the land at a local industrial park. 

Hawkesbury Mayor Jeanne Charlebois said the city signed a document with Ecolomondo, but there's more work to do. Details about the plant will be released once those discussions have concluded, he said. 

According to Radio-Canada, the deal is expected to be officially inked by the end of June.
