Groundbreaking Ceremony Held in Surrey for North America’s First Close-Loop Waste Management System

Mayor Linda Hepner along with representatives from public funding partner, the Government of Canada and private partner Orgaworld recently broke ground on Surrey’s new organics Biofuel Processing Facility. Once completed in early 2017, Surrey will be home to the first closed-loop fully-integrated organics waste management system in North America. 

”This project is a milestone for meeting the sustainability goals we have set for Surrey,” said Mayor Linda Hepner. “Not only will the facility be the first closed-loop, fully integrated, organics waste management system on the continent, but it will reduce CO2 emissions in Surrey by 40,000 tonnes a year – that’s the equivalent of taking 8,500 cars off the road per year.”

Rules and regulations in C&D recycling

The C&D recycling industry is always affected by large-scale regulatory actions taken by federal governments, both good and bad. In theUnited States there have been recent developments that could eventually have effect outside of the country – in Canada and elsewhere.

Below is an update on some of the actions in the U.S. that the Construction & Demolition Recycling Association (CDRA) has been working on. We present this so recyclers everywhere can be aware of some of the concepts being bandied about in the regulatory community.

How Efficient Hydraulic Systems Reduce Fuel Consumption on Refuse and Recycling Trucks

In 2009, households and institutions in the United States generated 243 million tons of municipal solid waste(MSW). Every day, the average American tosses away 4.34 pounds of trash. Canadians actually tossed more than Americans – in 2008, approximately 1,031 kilograms (kg) of waste was disposed per person – or approximately 2.82 kg (6.22 pounds) per day. Although recycling rates are on the rise in both countries, and more facilities now convert solid waste into energy, the vast majority is still collected and transported to a landfill via refuse and recycling trucks.

For many years, the refuse and recycling vehicles of choice in North America have been a truck-mounted body with a collection chamber at the rear. One or two riders step off the truck at the collection location, stop and lift bags, bins or any number of receptacles and dump it into the chamber. When the collection area is sufficiently filled, the truck’s hydraulic system is engaged and hydraulic cylinders move a compression plate to pack and move the waste into the truck body. When the body is full, the truck is driven to a transfer station or landfill to unload and repeat the process.

Grinding It Out In the Land Clearing Business

Thomas McKellar hails from a business/marketing and land development background. Today, he is President and owner of Site Prep, a cutting-edge land clearing business specializing in pipeline right-of-ways (generally 50 miles and less) as well as general construction site clearing. He also runs Biomass Chippers.us, an in-woods chipping and grinding specialist company.

McKellar definitely considers himself to be, in part, a waste-wood/organic materials recycler. With Site Prep he has about eight years of what he calls big pipeline experience, clearing land on right-of-way construction jobs, and managing the resulting organic materials. For the majority of his time as owner of Site Prep, McKellar has used tracked mulchers for his stump grinding and land clearing work. In the fall of 2014, he purchased a CBI Magnum Force 6400T horizontal tracked grinder manufactured by Newton, New Hampshire-based Continental Biomass Industries. He is currently using it in place of multiple pieces of equipment, including his old stump grinders and his former chippers and horizontal grinders, which he has since sold. He says he has not looked back.

Study confirms sustainability of copy paper made from agricultural waste

Offsetters Climate Solutions and Prairie Paper Ventures Inc. (Prairie Paper) recently released an updated life cycle report that reconfirms copy paper made from agricultural waste, like wheat straw, is one of the most sustainable copy papers in the world.

Offsetters, a Canadian-based carbon management solutions provider, expanded its 2012 landmark life cycle comparison to include 15 criteria (vs. the original seven criteria two years ago), in order to accurately review Prairie Paper’s Step Forward Paper. The inaugural life cycle study compared Step Forward Paper with other copy paper types available in North America. Offsetters found in 2012, that wheat straw-based paper has the lowest environmental impact with respect to non-renewable energy use, greenhouse gas emissions, wastewater and aquatic acidification.
