Recycling Alternative has been providing recycling services to businesses throughout the Lower Mainland since 1989.
In addition to running its fleet on high blends of recycled biodiesel (which it also provides through the Vancouver BioDiesel Co-op), Recycling Alternative is working to further reduce its annual emissions of 123.5 tonnes CO2e through fleet management initiatives including driver education, staff commuter surveys, and smart routing.
For Recycling Alternative, another benefit of participating in Climate Smart was contact with a ready-made network of other businesses either trained or in training. Working with like-minded businesses towards environmental and cost-cutting solutions in a workgroup setting led to B2B networking opportunities and new clients: a win-win situation.
