Waste Management

Global consumption of both renewable and non-renewable resources is taking place at an unprecedented pace. As harvesters and stewards of a renewable resource, we have a responsibility to maximize every tree we harvest and minimize the waste we produce.

    Reimagining the Way We Think of Waste

    We recognize that our manufacturing process does create waste that is landfilled. Each of our facilities produces some amount of waste that can’t be used for other purposes.

    While we face challenges with finding cost-effective solutions and partners to develop value-added products for what is currently considered waste, our ultimate aim is to find other uses for non-hazardous materials where possible and to divert material from landfills.

    Our Goal: We are committed to reducing waste throughout Canfor’s operations by identifying beneficial uses of materials.
