INFORMATION ABOUT RECYCLING
What is LEED?
(Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) LEED is for all building types and all building phases, including new construction, interior fit outs, operations & maintenance, and core & shell. When a waste load is processed as a LEED load, a report will show how much of each material was recovered for recycling. LEED reports are provided for a small fee of just $30 from the recycling landfill, where waste is separated and recycled using the material recycling facility (MRF). Trash Gordon has 0 markup on these reports, as we would instead encourage this process than make any profit from it.
Drywall being dumped at general landfills has been long-linked with many environmental problems, such as the generation of hydrogen sulfide and sulfur dioxide. Hydrogen sulfide is a flammable and extremely hazardous gas that can cause eye, nose, throat, and respiratory issues. Sulfur dioxide is one of the main contributors to acid rain, which results in a negative impact on the environment.
Did you know?
Drywall that can’t be reused by manufacturers can also be used as soil enhancement! Awesome, right? Instead of it taking up space at a landfill and creating toxic gases, we can take it to the correct facilities where it will be cleaned, sorted, and used to have entirely positive uses for our environment. MRFs can recycle 90% of stockpiled drywall material.
When it comes to recycling scrap metal, the list of benefits for the environment and the economy runs long: benefits in energy conservation, conservation of natural resources; greenhouse gas emission reduction; and positively impacting the Canadian economy. Recycling steel uses 74% less energy than producing new steel from raw materials. 100% of the metals that we take to MRFs will be recycled.
Wood & Cardboard
The first and most important benefit of recycling wood, paper, and cardboard is saving trees. Even after replanting trees to make up for the ones that have been cut down, trees take a too long time to reach maturity: this means that the less we cut down in the first place, the better. Wood recycling also helps reduce our environmental impact by preventing less trash from ending up in the landfills, which in turn reduces air and water pollution. Wood recycling is an ideal technique for ensuring that the environment is maintained in its natural state. Furthermore, wood recycling continues to provide new opportunities that keep up with changing customer demand for recycled products, including the rapidly expanding avenue of renewable power in the form of biofuel. The cardboard that we bring to the MRFs are mechanically separated, baled, then transported to brokers and mills to be recycled into new cardboard. MRFs are able to recycle 95% of the wood and cardboard that is brought in.
WHY RECYCLING STILL MATTERS
Awareness of recycling has improved in recent years, but not enough.
In 2007, the City of Calgary approved a waste diversion strategy to divert 80 percent of landfill waste by 2020. This vision was intended for all construction sectors, including Single Family (SF), Multi-Family (MF), Industrial, Commercial, and Institutional (ICI), and Construction & Demolition (C&D).
Sadly, the last waste audit conducted in Calgary, completed in 2014 – indicates only a 20-30 percent recovery rate: a massive difference from the original 80 percent. In 2015, the city council revised its overall target to 70 percent waste diversion by 2025.
For the C&D sector expressly, the city council set a revised target of only 40 percent, which is just half of the original goal.
Calgary recycles only 20-30 percent of its C&D waste and allows the private sector to choose its own waste disposal programs. This means that there are no obligations for contractors to uphold even the current 40% target nor report their waste disposal strategies.
Ultimately, recycling is merely a choice: a sorely neglected choice too often in an industry lacking accountability.
These are some sad statistics. If you choose Trash Gordon to remove your C&D waste, we guarantee that we will take ALL of your waste to a recycling facility because we care to make a difference!
