Watch: Priestly Demolition gives jobsite tour of two-building teardown in downtown Toronto
Before Priestly Demolition could begin their latest project, the two buildings set to be torn down had to first be stripped and rid of asbestos.
Surrounded by buildings, roadways and pedestrians on all sides, the Priestly team brought in cranes and debris screens to protect the surrounding structures before using a combination of high-reach equipment and excavators to make way for new high-rise condos in the downtown core of Toronto, Ontario.
All materials resulting from the 17-week project were sent to a nearby lake that is being filled in as part of the development of a new water treatment plant site.

On January 1st, 2021, the Basel Convention's plastics waste amendments became effective in Canada. The amendments focus on the international movement of plastic wastes that may have limited recycling options or be more difficult to recycle. This change will likely be felt all along the supply chain, including collectors, processors, and exporters. If you export plastic waste for recycling or final disposal, or if you are an exporter of other scrap materials, including plastic, paper, or e-waste, you may be subject to Canada's Regulations, and a valid export or transit permit may be required.
