Recycling

Recycling

With a combined total of 50,000 tonnes of C&D waste per year being moved through two of Budget Environmental Disposal’s divisions, Budget Bin and Regional Waste Recovery, Budget has always viewed recycling and waste diversion as it's primary focus. With this focus in mind, all team members of the Budget Family continually strive to achieve a 90% - 95% diversion rate from landfills.

Budget Environmental Disposal’s receiving and sorting facility, Regional Waste Recovery, is a Ministry of Environment licensed transfer station ideally situated in Hamilton. This Leading Edge Facility has a state of the art sorting facility which ensures maximum waste diversion from landfills. This is an ideal solution to help with the growing demand for LEED and environmentally responsible waste management.

Onsite Waste Diversion

Budget Demolition has implemented a cost effective technique known as onsite source separation. Onsite source separation or waste diversion is a cost effective means to effectively recycling materials, as a building is being demolished, all materials are separated into the following categories:

  • Brick/block/concrete rubble
  • Metal
  • Wood
  • Reusable items

The remaining items that do not fall into either categories are then brought to our Regional Waste Recovery Sorting Facility where the remaining debris are further sorted and a minimum diversion rate of 90% is achieved.

Prior to starting any project a Waste Reduction Work Plan / Waste Audit is completed to determine the best way to divert the waste. This program is in place on all Budget Demolition sites, and has made all dealings with the Ontario LEED and the Federal 3R's programs successful.
