City of Calgary’s 80/20 initiative
We recycle in accordance to the City of Calgary’s 80/20 initiative of 2004. Calgary waste removal proposed a system where 80% of current product being taken to dump sites will end up being recycled, while the remaining 20% will go to city landfills. In order to achieve these goals, differing waste streams must be addressed, which includes construction and demolition materials. We are proud to say we exceed these limits on these recycled materials. These materials include:
- Concrete / Aggregate
- Metals, cardboard, and other materials.
- Wood / wood products
We here at Performance Waste take care of this for you by hauling all our bins to recycling companies. No extra charges are required on any of our bins for this service. If you have any questions concerning recyclable materials, visit our Recycling Page or contact us for more information.
