Surrey Recycling and Waste Dropoff Facility

In response to Metro Vancouver’s 80% waste diversion target, our team provided preliminary and detail design for new facility that includes self-haul, small-vehicle recycling and waste dropoff with a recycling/EDR program depot, transfer station building, office building, three scales, scale houses and canopy, recycling canopies and diesel refueling station. (Vancouver, BC)


Lower Stl’atl’imx Tribal Council Waste Management System Implementation

Waste management system infrastructure was completed for three remote First Nations communities which provides a full range of recycling services, additional waste disposal capacity and allows for the communities to achieve a higher standard of waste management. (Northern BC)


Coquitlam Transfer Station & Drop-Off Facility

The new facility has capacity to process 600 tonnes per day. Our team provided the programming, design and construction administration for the unique transfer station project that was constructed on top of an existing landfill. It offers both residential recycling and garbage drop-off for self-haul customers and large vehicle garbage transfer for commercial and municipal packer trucks. (Coquitlam, BC)

Recycling & Waste Drop-off

Dropoff facility operators must maintain a balance between effective technologies with efficient processes and ensuring user fees are affordable and wait times are manageable for the communities they serve. Our cost-effective solutions for recycling and waste drop-off will help make improvements to facilities so that capacity can be increased and customer wait times and inbound queues are minimized.
