Roseridge Waste Commission operates a regional facility that serves six municipalities in Alberta, Canada. It provides secure disposal of non-hazardous waste, as well as recycling and composting services. The site is currently undergoing a major upgrade to build a new recycle depot that will increase its capacity and efficiency. The buildings will be constructed using recycled materials, such as brick, wood, and concrete. This will reduce the environmental impact of the project and demonstrate the site's commitment to sustainability. Everyone involved in the project is excited to be part of this innovative and green initiative that will benefit the community and the environment for years to come.
