Green Energy Services’ LLDPE Liner Recycling
Green Energy Services, together with our recycling partners, have introduced a recycling service for the oil and gas industry in Western Canada. Working with our recycling partners, we domestically shred, grind and wash LLDPE liners, reclaiming the LLDPE resin in a 100% environmentally friendly process.
Plastic takes more than 1,000 years to biodegrade in a landfill!
True Environmental Stewardship
Environmental stewards strive to sustain natural resources and our environment for future generations. People depend on natural resources for their livelihood. However, pressures on the environment resulting from development are steadily increasing. Therefore, it is necessary for citizens and the business community to ensure that their activities and operations are environmentally responsible.
In Western Canada, there is currently well over 15 million pounds of plastic from pit and tank liners going into landfills on an annual basis. The oil and gas industry is encouraged to promote waste minimization within their operations, and therefore, the industry is encouraged to develop effective strategies to minimize and effectively handle wastes in a diligent manner.
Liner is cleaned onsite to remove any dirt, oil, chemical and non-LLDPE contaminants
