Green Policies

At Fleetwood, our focus is on recycling and material recovery, not sending materials to landfills. We make every effort to operate in an environmentally friendly manner, including recycling each and every one of our disposal and recycling bins.

All the drywall, cardboard, clean wood and concrete we received from our customers is 100% recycled.

In an effort to continue our dedication to environmental sustainability, we supply our clients with a list of unacceptable materials in our regular disposal and recycling bins found below:

LEED Friendly: To help general contractors meet their Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) requirements, we certify and quantify the waste generated from their sites. For every bin that is dumped out, we can provide a report which will confirm how much percentage of the garbage is recycled, how much is sent to landfills and a list of recovery centres where the garbage is disposed. We remove and dispose waste in a cost effective, environmentally and socially responsible manner.
