Construction waste facility approved for Aldergrove

Waste from around the Fraser Valley would be brought to facility

An amendment to a land use contract was approved by Township council on Monday, paving the way for Cloverdale Disposal Ltd. to establish a facility for recovering and recycling construction waste.

The application is for 2.36 acres at 26103 30A Ave.

According to a report prepared for council, the recovery facility will accept a variety of waste material from the construction industry, including wood, gypsum, cardboard, metal and plastics.

The waste will come from construction projects throughout the Fraser Valley. The centralized recovery and sorting facility will reduce the need for the construction industry to sort the waste at the construction site and then deliver the different materials to different recycling facilities.

Cloverdale Disposal anticipates about 40 deliveries a day, Monday to Saturday, by vehicles ranging in size from pickups to disposal bin trucks.

Councillor Bev Dornan welcomed the addition to Aldergrove.

“It supports environmentally friendly containment of waste, and will bring jobs to Langley,” she said.
