YVR is committed to reducing waste and increasing recycling.
In 2014, we recycled 1.3 of 3.8 million kilograms of materials, totalling a 35 per cent diversion rate — a 3 per cent improvement from 2013. Diverted materials included bottles, paper, pallets, glass, metal and plastics.
Our waste-reduction projects include:
- Organic waste diversion program
- Construction material reuse and recycling
- Materials recycling
