Construction & Demolition Volume Restrictions in Effect July 1 2017

To our Valued Customers:

ECOWASTE VOLUME RESTRICTIONS IN 2017

This is to inform you of volume restrictions on receipt of construction and demolition materials delivered to Ecowaste Landfill starting July 1, 2017.  Please note, these restrictions do not affect recycling materials like concrete, clean asphalt shingles, clean and select wood, yard waste, or to approved soils.

Our application to the Ministry of Environment to increase our annual permitted tonnage is still in progress and it appears we will not receive the requested increase in our annual permitted tonnage until later in 2017.  As you may be aware we relaxed the volume restrictions we had in place in 2016 at the beginning of 2017 and have not required restrictions to date this year.  However, in the last two months volumes have increased again and we are currently tracking at our annual limit.  In addition, the Vancouver Landfill is terminating their acceptance of ‘demo garbage’ effective July 15, 2017.  This action by the Vancouver Landfill is likely to add additional volume to Ecowaste, which will cause us to exceed our annual volume cap.

As such, we are placing restrictions on our largest customers, and capping all other customers to a maximum volume of 100 tonnes per month.  If your company has not already received an email indicating a specific monthly tonnage limit you will be restricted to the 100 tonne per month limit.

No increase in tipping fees is planned now but may be contemplated later in the year.

We appreciate your continued support of our business and look forward to continuing to provide you with an efficient service that supports the service you provide to your customers.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at (604) 276-1202.

Yours truly,

Temporary Gypsum/Drywall Restrictions

Due to current production issues with gypsum/drywall processors we are not currently accepting inbound drywall at this time.  We will update this post when this issue has been resolved.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Ecowaste Landfill Tonnage Restriction and Rate Adjustment – Q4 2015

Categories:

Ecowaste Industries Ltd. operates the Ecowaste Landfill under an Operational Certificate (OC) issued by the BC Ministry of Environment (MoE).  One of the conditions in the OC imposes an annual tonnage limit.

Construction and demolition (C&D) activity has been very brisk in 2015 and we are rapidly approaching our annual limit.  We have applied to the MoE for approval to exceed our annual limit and they have granted an approval for a 10% variance.  While this is helpful, this variance alone will not allow us to remain in compliance with our annual tonnage limit at the current inbound rate.

To that end we are taking two approaches to help us maintain our revised limit:

  1. Increasing pricing on material to the landfill by 15% on October 15, 2015
  2. Implementing a cap on inbound C&D materials for larger customers

Your business is important to us and we regret that we will be increasing our tipping fees on non-recycled products or capping inbound material to help us meet this limit.  We realize that this may cause you to look for other disposal options, however, we will not exceed the annual limit specified in our Operational Certificate.  The annual tonnage limit is tracked on a calendar year basis and is reset on January 1, 2016.

Our revised rates can be found on this web site under Our Services – Landfill Rates

If you have any questions on this change please feel free to contact us at (604) 276-9511 or at info@ecowaste.com
