Highlights of Vaughan

Vaughan started as a Township in the year, with a small population of around 5,000 residents. After the Second World War, an influx of immigrants pushed the population to 16,000 by the 1960s. After incorporation as a City in 1991, Vaughan went through a decade of explosive growth to provide a home for 111,000 residents. In 2013, the population of Vaughan had reached over 315,000.

Vaughan’s remarkable population growth provided the driving force for its incredible economic progress. It’s educated, skilled, and affluent residents generate considerable demand for an increasingly diverse range of products and services. As a result, the city of Vaughan is recognized as one of the top three performing economies in Canada. The city’s employment prospects and support networks in the GTA make it a favourite destination for new immigrants in Canada. Vaughan is one of the most diverse and multicultural communities in Canada, considering that about 45 percent of its population are immigrants.

Waste removal for your construction or landscaping project

Depending on the scale of your landscaping project, Platinum Mini Bins will provide you with bin rentals for short-term or long-term purposes and timely waste removal to ensure that your site remains clean, safe, and organized at all times.

Construction and landscaping projects typically leave behind vast amounts of different kinds of waste that should be properly sorted for appropriate disposal. With the help of our professional team, we can help you sort the different types of waste at your site to ensure that it’s properly disposed of according to the regulations and in an environmentally friendly way.

Sorting construction and landscaping waste involves several steps:

  • Auditing: Many sites have a professional contractor who can estimate salvage and recycling opportunities. The audit can be carried out by the owner, designer, architect, engineer, salvage expert, or other professional contractors involved in the project. This information will help us identify the best size of bin rental required for the project, as well as the number of waste removal trips necessary for proper planning.

  • Planning: The typical activities in any site include deconstruction, demolition, and digging, which can be performed simultaneously or one-at-a-time depending on the size of the project. In some cases, we recommend scheduling multiple waste removal trips from the site to make your work more manageable. We find that this is a better strategy compared to waiting for the waste to build up and then start sorting it, which increases your disposal costs.

Developing a waste removal plan

The process of planning for waste removal is more or less the same for residential, commercial, and industrial projects. Sorting trash/waste for small projects should be a straightforward process. For large projects, the architect and contractors on-site typically work together to outline the work carried out on-site.

The typical steps include:

  • Assessing the hazardous materials such as combustibles and asbestos on site

  • Identifying the type and quantity of materials that can be salvaged and reused.

  • Establishing the type and quantity of materials that can be separated for recycling, such as wood, metal, concrete, bricks, or gypsum.

  • Setting up procedures for sorting and separating different types of waste and recyclables, such as identifying the bins that will be used for recyclables.

  • Estimating the quantities of waste to be disposed for proper identification of the right size of waste bin rental.

  • Calculating the amount of waste that will be generated from each activity, including deconstruction, salvage, and renovation. Professional contractors on-site can use disposal records of similar past projects as a guide for the audit.

  • Identification of recycling and waste disposal facilities around the site that may be interested in recycling, reusing, or disposing of the waste materials generated by the project.

For different kinds of projects, our technicians can help you identify the best waste collection and hauling options for your project. These may include:

  • Source separation – where recyclables such as cardboard, metal, wood, and gypsum are separated on-site and put into separate bins or stored in piles on-site

  • Mixed or commingled collection – where recyclable materials are collected on a single bin for sorting at a later date.

A mixed collection is not recommended because of the time wastage when sorting waste, as well as the loss of recyclable materials that are not retrieved. Please keep in mind that hazardous waste should not be mixed with other types of waste. But you can contact our office for special arrangements to help you get rid of the specific toxic waste responsibly.
