Food Waste Recycling

Tasked with recycling over 150,000 lbs of ingredients from an ice cream plant, we utilized our organics recycling program where the food waste was re-purposed for animal feeds & fortifying organic soil. In the shipment we found over 1.5 million popsicle sticks. We thought it was a shame to run them through our wood program (into wood chips), so after a viral Facebook post appealing to schools, the sticks are now arts and crafts!

Product Destruction to Creation

Blue Planet recently recycled 30,000 lbs of defective PET water bottle preforms (used to make water bottles by heating and blowing them up) We recycled these preforms into a ground resin used in a variety of applications: fibre for carpets, fleece fabrics for clothing, and plant pots.

Blue Planet Community Involvement!

Blue Planet worked together with the Township of Langley to recycle 100’s of garbage cans that residents brought in after they received their new and improved garbage toters. The community event was a huge success and the old garbage cans were recycled into pipe resin!

Product Destruction

There are many reasons finished products need to be destroyed. Our goal is responsible recovery within the destruction process. We were asked to destroy a failed product ready for market – plastic paint brush covers. The challenge with this project was the paper label attached to each piece.

It would have been too labour intensive to dismantle by hand. So we ground the original product and then used an aspiration method to remove the lighter paper from the heavier plastic. The result? 100% recovery down to the wood pallets, boxes, plastic and paper!!

Reinventing “Organics Disposal”

Introducing organics recycling for food manufacturing, logistics & distributors. We carefully process and recover nutritional content from the products we recycle, converting waste into valuable feeds, proteins or organic soils. We recently recycled enough nuts to feed 10 farms instead of going to landfill. Many of our customers bundle our services, making for one efficient pickup!

BLUE PLANET at the JUNOS!!

This year’s Juno Awards in Calgary featured an acrylic plastic stage floor. Blue Planet was the chosen recycler for these plastic panels. All the plastics we process are sent to carefully selected best end use manufacturing markets. All our programs are optimized so you enjoy reliable service, low program costs and the highest rebates in the industry. It was a true pleasure to be a part of this Canadian tradition.

Helping Out On The Farm

This week at Blue Planet, we recycled enough nuts that could have fed ten farms!

And as a matter of fact… it did. Thousands of nuts were turned into animal feed and kept out of the landfill.
