CRD Waste Diversion in Action

 

 

Opportunities to Upcycle Wood Waste Across CanadaOpportunities to Upcycle Wood Waste Across Canada489603545

Wood Waste is a major contributor to Canada’s landfills- making up the single largest material in our landfill by volume. But much of that wood holds value. Businesses and governments across the country are increasingly recognizing the opportunities to divert wood waste and upcycle it. Across Canada innovative solutions are emerging to tackle the wood waste challenge.

This video showcases current initiatives aimed at reducing CRD waste in Metro Vancouver. Conventional demolition practices are being challenged through municipally led policies that require recycling and salvage of material for uses beyond the landfill.

Initiatives include the production of alternative fuels for cement kilns that replace greenhouse gas (GHG) intensive fuels such as coal and natural gas. To that end, landfills are redefining their use by becoming alternative fuel producers and even providing space for deconstruction contractors.
