Our panel organizations building action:
— The Pro-Claim Group is a collective of Restoration companies aimed to elevate their industry with a focus on sustainability — from fleet, to facility, to the products they source and how they manage waste.
— City of Victoria’s Zero Waste Victoria is leaping into action with the creation of a deconstruction bylaw to motivate the salvage of reusable and recyclable materials from building demolitions.
— The Re-Use People are expanding their popular program to BC and taking action to build the local capacity to reduce waste through C&D recovery and reuse.
— King County is a leader in Green building programs and C&D recycling. Balancing ordinances, standards and bans with practical resources, programs and actions for all their stakeholders to find success in diversion.

Join us to hear from a great panel of speakers from organizations who are taking action with solutions for CD&R waste.
Construction, demolition and renovation (incl. restoration) waste represents a significant portion (4 million tonnes or 12%) of the solid waste stream generated in Canada. It also presents an opportunity for innovation and better processes for recycling, reusing and circular building practices.
