Every municipality has its own regulations when it comes to dumping and recycling compliance.
Depending on the age of the building, and the municipality in question, recycling rates can vary from 70% to 90%.
At J&R, we conform to all municipal regulations, and we are committed to recycling as much material as possible to lighten the load on our local landfills.
We use a variety of dumps to ensure we handle all spoil in the most eco-friendly way and take advantage of all recycling possibilities offered in the Lower Mainland.
New Green Demolition Rules
2015 saw the beginning of new rules regarding house demolition/deconstruction and recycling. With existing relationships in place with the major recycling facilities and transfer stations in the Lower Mainland, this has been a relatively seamless transition for us.
We have worked diligently with every municipality in the Lower Mainland to ensure that our customers are meeting all municipal recycling compliance requirements.
Asbestos Testing, Removal & Disposal
J&R will arrange a thorough inspection of building materials using a reputable, trusted environmental engineer for the presence of asbestos containing materials (ACM). If we find asbestos in a building, we will formulate a custom solution to ensure that it is removed and disposed of safely.
Asbestos can be embedded in roofing materials, pipes, siding, wallboard, joint compounds, and floor tiles. We facilitate all the necessary skills, equipment, and expertise to remove all traces of asbestos safely and efficiently.
Asbestos must be disposed of in a manner prescribed by law to ensure the safety of the community and the environment. J&R meets all the legal requirements for the safe removal and disposal of asbestos and asbestos-contaminated refuse.
