"GFL is proud to be a partner to the Niagara Region and our team is excited and ready to bring our superior customer service to the community," said Patrick Dovigi, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of GFL. "Since our inception in 2007, sustainability has been a key focus for GFL and we are committed to investing in innovative and sustainable solutions. We know that the Niagara community shares this commitment, which is why we have invested in 31 new CNG trucks to support the region in reaching its sustainability goals."
"Environmental sustainability is a priority for the Niagara Region and our partnership with GFL is one important way we are working towards reaching our sustainability goals," said Regional Chair Jim Bradley. "As a region, we are committed to doing our part to address climate change through increasing waste diversion rates, reducing our carbon footprint and driving environmental protections locally."
For C&D recyclers, waste haulers, demolition contractors and landfills, there is a growing opportunity to profit from rethinking processes. Although every operation is different, by streamlining the front end of the C&D operation processes with purpose-built technologies, recyclers can tap into new end markets, accommodate higher material volumes, stay ahead of regulatory restrictions, increase recovery rates and add commodity revenue, while decreasing labor and other costs.
