The Alliance supports the Metro Vancouver strategy of maximizing reuse, recycling and materials recovery which includes a particular emphasis on organic materials. Food waste comprises 21 percent of the waste disposed in Metro Vancouver.
Members of the Alliance provide very significant recycling and recovery capacity with respect to the Metro Vancouver waste stream at no cost to the tax payer:
• Each year our industries manage an amount of organics equivalent to more than 50% of the solid waste sent to the Cache Creek landfill
• We are integral to Metro Vancouver’s goal of diverting organics out of the waste stream
• Our members have vast experience and expertise in a wide range of waste reduction, recycling and value extraction processes
