Tours (May 9)

Tour 1 – Beaver Regional, Transfer Station and Clean Harbors (sorry this tour is full)

Beaver Regional Waste Management Services Commission was created in 1992 and operates under the name of Beaver Municipal Solutions. The facility at Ryley is one of the largest active landfills in western Canada. This tour includes a stop at a transfer station, a site tour of Clean Harbors and Beaver Municipal Solutions landfills. Delegates will have an opportunity to check out some big equipment up close and personal and see some of the fruits of the Upcycle Challenge (tire covers made from used bill boards and an electric guitar made from pallets and construction cast-offs) while enjoying some local cuisine.

Tour 2 – City of Edmonton EcoStation and Waste Management Centre

The tour will stop at the Kennedale Eco Station where delegates will see how the City of Edmonton manages HHW, electronics, and other household materials. The tour continues to the Edmonton Waste Management Centre (EWMC) showing the largest solid waste transfer and processing facility between Vancouver and Toronto. The EWMC includes a MRF, electronics recycling, large scale composting facility, landfill gas recovery facility, leachate treatment plant and the Enerkem Biofuels Facility that converts waste materials to Ethonol.

Tour 3 – Brewery Tour

This tour is intended to add a little hoppy, frothy goodness to the conference. Edmonton Brewery Tours takes guests on a journey through Edmonton’s thriving craft beer scene. Discover how passionate tap pullers and a thirst for good beer quickly evolved into a local liquid obsession. Although perhaps not the highlight, waste management will certainly be discussed. Bottoms up!
