SUSTAINABLE MANAGEMENT OF CONSTRUCTION, RENOVATION AND DEMOLITION WASTE
October 18th - noon
Did you know that according to Statistics Canada, construction, renovation and demolition waste accounts for about 12% of all solid waste generated in Canada? Or that only an estimated 16 percent of construction waste is reclaimed?
In July 2009 the Waste Reduction and Recycling Support (WRARS) Program was established to improve Manitoba's waste diversion rate, encourage sustainable waste management practices and enhance municipal waste diversion activities via $10 per tonne levy.
Join to hear some perspectives on how it is working and if there are any plans to change it.
The City of Winnipeg’s standing policy committee on Property and Development, Heritage and Downtown Development, pushed by groups like Manitoba Heavy Construction Association, ordered a report on how to become more robust when it comes to recycling programs for construction waste such as asphalt, pavement and crushed concrete.
Join to learn some thoughts on the outcomes of this report and how it might impact you.
Curious to know more about the broader challenges and opportunities related to Construction, Renovation and Demolition (CRD) waste diversion?
Join to identify and be able to pursue opportunities for reducing, recycling and/or diverting construction, renovation and demolition waste.
