Waste Management Innovation Driven by Emterra Group at Saskatchewan’s Global Transportation Hub

Waste management leader Emterra launching flagship material recovery facility at Regina’s Global Transportation Hub. The single stream waste recycling facility begins operations July 2013 to serve a 10 year municipal deal with the City of Regina

Feb. 19, 2013 - PRLog -- Emterra Group, a leading Canadian waste management company, is preparing to launch its fourth single stream recycling-capable material recovery facility (MRF) in Regina, Saskatchewan at the Global Transportation Hub (GTH). The $18 million dollar investment comes on the heals of winning a 10 year contract with the City of Regina to process and market an anticipated 25,000 tonnes of annual recyclables collected curbside under the deal.  The facility will be operational to deliver services effective July 2013.

The MRF will be Emterra’s flagship single stream recycling (SSR) facility and set on a 13-acre parcel in Saskatchewan’s GTH (http://www.thegth.com (http://www.thegth.com/) ).  The 45,000 sq. ft.  (MRF) will boast a recycling capacity of 50,000 tonnes annually. These capabilities will allow Emterra (http://www.emterra.ca) to broaden its ability to additionally serve industrial, institutional and commercial customers to further divert waste in the market area.

“This operation in Saskatchewan will be Emterra’s flagship facility,” said CEO Emmie Leung. “It’s our first presence in the province and the first MRF built from the ground up with a full commitment to environmental responsibility and sustainability.”

This innovative and technologically advanced MRF will be a leader in efficiency and environmental responsibility. It will divert more waste from landfill while using less energy, water and natural resources while emitting less greenhouse gas in its operation. From using the most advanced waste processing equipment available today, to the use of recycled and reclaimed materials in its construction and adopting LEED’s best practices for “green” design and construction, the MRF will be a model of innovation. The result will be greater environmental sustainability and a cleaner environment for workers at the MRF itself.

“We selected the GTH as the location for our MRF because of the partnership opportunities it offered and the fast, efficient, cost effective access to Emterra’s North American and global markets and municipal partners. We are very excited to be joining the GTH at the ground floor,” Leung said. She added that the experience of working with the GTH team to define and find solutions to Emterra’s operational needs has been outstanding.

The GTH based MRF will be Emterra’s 15th in Canada, and the fourth SSR facility. Single stream recycling allows residents to put all recyclables into one bin and the sorting takes place at the facility. This approach results in an increase in the recovery of recyclable materials (approximately 20-25%) compared to recycling programs that require sorting by residents and businesses. Relentlessly pursuing increased recyclable collection has made Emterra not only the largest SSR facility designer, builder, and operator in Canada, but also the largest commodities marketer in Canada – marketing over 500,000 tonnes of recyclables.
