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.

Sustainable Development

Recycling is important to the communities and regions where we work. A responsible and efficient approach to reducing environmental impact is essential.

Conserves Energy & Natural Resources

Recycling plastics reduces the amount of energy and natural resources (such as water & petroleum) needed to create virgin plastic.

Saves Landfill Space

Recycling plastic products also keeps them out of landfills and allows the plastics to be reused in manufacturing new products. Recycling one ton of plastic saves 7.4 cubic yards of landfill space.

The Process

  • Cleaning

    Liner is cleaned onsite to remove any dirt, oil, chemical and non-LLDPE contaminants

  • Cut and Rolled

    Clean liner material is cut and rolled on location

  • Baled and Stored

    Liner material is picked up and delivered to GES facility to be baled and stored

  • Transported

    Baled material is transported to recycling facility

  • Refined

    Plastic is cleaned, shredded and melted down to reclaim LLDPE resin pellets

  • Recycled

    Resin pellets are utilized to make new plastic products such as garbage cans, recycling bins, buckets, composite fencing and decking, plastic tanks

Shredding

*Not all liner can be recycled. However, Green Energy Services offers a cost-effective solution that reduces the environmental footprint in landfills. The product will break down quicker and hold less water in the landfill allowing for a more environmentally friendly disposal.
