Building Life Cycle - Part 15 - Waste & Recycling

What do I do and where does it go?


Similar to utilities such as hydro and natural gas, waste management is common for every property you manage. The WM team will be sharing examples and providing you with information to navigate the ever changing environmental and sustainability landscape by covering these topics:

  • What happens to all of the material after it leaves my site?
  • We care about sustainability. What actions can we take to improve diversion?
  • When is it appropriate to have a compactor vs. typical bins and toters?
  • I have a developer asking for advice. What are the top 5 things I should provide information on?
  • I have occupancy coming up in a new build. How do I ask for a quote and what information should I provide?
  • Why is there not a common system for all municipalities across BC when it comes to recycling? What is RecycleBC?
  • Do you have any intel on upcoming changes that BC will be legislating?
  • What are the things I need to consider when creating a budget for waste management over the next 3 years?
  • The 5 things we see often that we wished properties would stop doing.

Our intention is to provide you with knowledge that is relevant for all building types and property managers. We will ensure there is time for an open forum discussion to cover questions throughout this session.
