Shrinking Our Footprint – Expanding Our Horizons
At Edmonton EXPO Centre, we subscribe to a comprehensive energy management program in order to make our operating systems and equipment as energy efficient as possible.
There are two energy management systems in use on site, which were installed based on the need for central control of lighting, heating, ventilating, air conditioning and ice making processes. This ensures we are only using the energy we need and reduces unnecessary energy waste at our venue.
We employ aggressive programs to minimize the volume of waste generated by our on-site operations. In 2018, we achieved at 60% diversion rate, meaning that only 40% of our waste actually reached the landfill.
We “reduce, reuse and recycle” as part of the daily fabric of our on-site operations.
How are we doing it?
- Composting: Everything from organic waste to the morning’s coffee grinds will be placed into the new green bins.
- Recycling: From all the usual suspects (paper and beverage containers) to napkins, coffee cups and organic material from our kitchen. We also recycle cardboard, Fluorescent tubes, electronic equipment, batteries, motor oil and filters, vehicle tires, scrap metal, wood and photocopy toner cartridges.There are 3-stream marked recycled containers on-site allowing guests to assist in our mission.
