Recycle and Reuse.

IMG_5708-1

As part of the green building strategy we are accounting for all the materials that come on and leave site and recycling as much waste as possible.

We are also making our own topsoil on site from peat and sand that were removed during initial excavation. Yesterday, Island Wood Waste Recycling (Qualicum Beach) helped us divert the bulk of our wood waste from landfill by grinding it on site to mix as organics into our topsoil. This future topsoil will be used for all native and drought resistant plant landscaping.
