Landfill and Disposal
At Emterra, our goal is to achieve Zero Waste. That means we will help make landfills a thing of the past. Today, however, landfills remain an important part of many waste programs. While we work hard to divert garbage from our landfills through recycling and composting, the remaining trash materials must be appropriately managed. We do this through properly designed, operated and maintained waste haulage fleets and facilities.
Our facilities are industry leading and always meet or exceed government regulations. We perform intensive monitoring on the site and surrounding areas to ensure environmentally-sound disposal.
We’re more than a waste management company. As a partner in the communities where we live and work, we believe in protecting the long-term integrity and environmental safety of our neighbours. Emterra also believes in providing environmentally responsible and cost effective services to our customers, including our disposal services.

Sustainability throughout Our Business
We believe in reducing the waste in our lives – we believe in Zero Waste. It’s not just what we do; it’s how we do it! By using alternative fuels in our fleets (like compressed natural gas and biodiesel) and employing innovative processes and technology in our recycling facilities, we continuously set new environmental standards for the industry.
