Harvest Urban Wood Recycling, Ltd has merged with Smithers Enterprises, Inc. (SEI), to expand and enhance its wood recycling services in the Metro Vancouver region, as the company said in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The Metro Vancouver region’s clean wood disposal ban requires the recycling of solid wood, lumber, and pallets. Harvest and SEI receive construction and demolition waste, extract the metals for recycling, and process the clean wood into biofuels for industrial customers.
This both significantly reduces the quantity of material being landfilled and provides cleaner alternatives to traditional fossil fuels, enhancing the region’s air quality and reducing harmful greenhouse gas emissions.
Harvest and SEI operate wood recycling facilities in both Vancouver and New Westminster. Harvest’s other facilities in Metro Vancouver – its composting and clean energy facility in Richmond and its organic transfer station and retail soil yard in North Shore – are not involved in this merger.
