CRD Waste Diversion in Action

 

 

307605092

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.
