City of Calgary Audit Update 2015 | Project Partner 2cg

Waste audit updates gave the City of Calgary the information needed to plan effectively.

Changes to landfill legislation and a growing population meant that a previous City of Calgary study on garbage composition had to be updated. In particular, analysis of the composition of garbage generated by the ICI and C&D sectors was required. 

In partnership with 2CG, S-Cubed Environmental conducted waste audits on businesses in six sectors chosen based on the areas generating the most waste. For the C&D audits, visual assessments at the landfill evaluated loads from renovation, demolition and construction projects.

These new audits identified current waste practices, evaluated changes from the previous report and made suggestions for best practices going forward. With results in hand, the City of Calgary had the information needed to plan effective strategies and policies for waste management and diversion.
