Waste Recovery Centre
Opened in 2016, the Tomlinson Waste Recovery Centre (WRC) provides a single destination and environmental resource for the recycling and recovery of an extensive range of materials, from Construction & Demolition to electronics and appliances. The Centre can process up to 550 tonnes of waste per day, diverting up to 122,000 tonnes a year from landfills. It has been specially designed to process, reclaim or recycle materials like aggregates, rock and concrete, metals and wood. It also converts mixed materials into biomass or fuel sources.
Tomlinson also provides the reporting required for builders to show their commitment to green building programs such as BOMA BEST and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED).
Construction & Demolition Facility
Our single stream C&D facility has been designed to recycle all manner of construction materials. Businesses and homeowners benefit from the ease of placing all their construction waste in one container, and the confidence of knowing the Centre sorts and reclaims all reusable materials.
Innovative and Integrated Facilities
Our dual stream sorting system is the same as the curbside service, and our equipment is designed to process mixed paper loads and mixed container loads. We specialize in commercial recycling for any size business. We also process source separated cardboard and electronics at no charge.
Waste Transfer Station
Any residual material which can’t be recycled is transferred to a licensed landfill. Our Transfer Station can be used by the public and large commercial customers.
