Reducing Waste

YVR is committed to reducing waste and increasing recycling.

In 2016, we recycled 2.15 of 4.22 million kilograms of materials, totalling a 51 per cent diversion rate — a 5 per cent improvement from 2015. 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
  • Sustainable printing
