LEED Certification Points
Our recycling processes qualify most construction and demolition projects for a credit under the Construction and Demolition Debris Management Planning section of LEED certification. We help keep materials local. We help divert materials from the landfill. We supply materials for reuse. Whether you’re outlining your solid waste management plan or trying to reach diversion goals, we can help you meet your LEED goals. Related links:
Each year we divert over 200,000 tonnes of reusable materials from landing in the landfill. Wood, metal, wire, cardboard and other materials get processed through a series of mechanical picking, shaking, sorting and chipping, and returned back to the region as valuable materials. In addition we produce Processed Engineered Fuel that replaces fossil fuels.
In July 2016 we merged with SEI to better support the sustainability goals of the region. Our “Main St.” location moved three blocks down the road to Ontario St. and provides a bigger, better location with easier access for customers.
Q: Can I come drop off materials?
A: If you have an account, yes!
Q: How do I set up an account?
A: Email a request to firstname.lastname@example.org stating 1) your company name, 2) the type of materials you are expecting to bring in, 3) and estimated volumes. We will then review this information, and email you a credit application to complete and send back.
Q: What are your prices?
A: See first tab.
Q: I’m working on a project to get it LEED certified. Can you help with that?
A: Yes. Upon arrival, we observe the composition of all loads. Upon departure, we provide a scale ticket that includes percentages of material categories. With this ticket, customers like you have a record of what materials were dropped off and recycled.
