Waste Audits

Waste Audits

YVR regularly conducts tenant waste audits to identify opportunities for improvement. In 2016, our contracted waste removal providers regularly assessed our waste material for quality assurance. We conducted a range of spot-check waste assessment audits for all terminal food and beverage tenants as part of our Waste Wars program. Tenants did very well during these audits, demonstrating commitment to our waste reduction efforts.
