Coquitlam's Big Green Monster
That's our term of endearment for the $30M, 260k-tonne capacity advanced material recovery and recycling facility that Belkorp Environmental Services is building in Coquitlam (United Boulevard south of Highway 1). It'll be able to handle 26% of metro Vancouver's municipal solid waste. The facility brings advanced waste separation technologies to the table, diverting waste from landfills, company VP Russ Black says. Bonus: It'll be at no cost to taxpayers and create 80 new green jobs.
