(optional tour of the Fortis Natural Gas refueling station in Langford)
CWMA invites you to join us for a workshop, networking event and AGM on April 24, 2015 at the Olympic View Golf Club, Victoria, BC.
Safety - The waste and recycling industry ranked as the fifth most dangerous occupation in America in 2013, according to annual Labor Department statistics. Safety is both a core value and a priority from a strategic management perspective and creating a safety culture in the workplace is the only way to protect employees and customers from harm.
Regulation - Anyone involved in the use, maintenance, service, installation or operation of roll-on/roll-off containers needs to be aware of the new WorkSafeBC regulation requirements.
Technology - Collection vehicles, containment options and green equipment technologies seem to change by the minute. Hear all about the latest developments and what manufacturers have to offer down the road.
Innovation - Waste and recycling fleets are proving themselves able to be true pioneers in a
shift to the clean alternative petroleum free fuels of the future, helping clean up urban air, reduce greenhouse gases, and increase energy security for the communities they serve.
Michael Tripp - BFI Canada Inc. A Progressive Waste Solutions Company
