Green Coast Rubbish President & CEO Eamonn Duignan was recently interviewed about his company and all things green!
The Green Coast recently rocked an epic zero waste recycling project for SNC-Lavalin in preparation for their commercial office relocation. In fact, this was the second time we have helped SNC-Lavalin with a move in the past 5 years! And this time, the stakes were even higher with a significantly larger project scope right smack […]
The Covid-19 pandemic has created many challenges including a new household focus on infection control as we strive to stay safe and flatten the curve – and sadly there have also been some unintended environmental impacts. Discarded medical masks, latex gloves and disinfecting wipes are littering the streets and ending up in landfills. Personal safety […]
From time to time, we like to highlight companies that we admire for their outstanding commitment to the environment in our One to Watch series. With that being said, we’d like to introduce you to Northwest Hydraulic Consultants – a company that we have personally worked with for years, and whose employees are making an impact in communities across BC, Canada and the world.
Late last year, Vancity reached out and asked if we had any interest in shooting a commercial for an upcoming media campaign that featured a few local businesses.
Green Coast Rubbish received a most unusual request from one of our community partners – Shelter to Home – during the month of May. This request would transform our operation into a “moving business” for the day to assist Shelter in Home in helping a single mom in a desperate situation.
As we continue to adjust to the new normal during Phase 2 of the COVID-19 health crisis, getting outdoors to explore local parks and trails is an excellent way to destress and get some exercise – as long as it’s done responsibly. Some parks are open for day use, while other popular parks in the Lower Mainland that have not reopened. Be sure to check before you trek! With that in mind, the Green Coast team is here to share our recommendations for favourite trails and parks in the Metro Vancouver area!
Office and commercial renovation projects are continuing in the Metro Vancouver area despite the 2020 coronavirus pandemic, bringing a unique challenge to the Green Coast team in terms of staying safe while continuing to provide zero-waste recycling solutions. The City of New Westminster recently came to us with just such a project – and this is how we did it, keeping zero waste and employee safety in mind!
The pursuit of being better, Sea urchins, and recycling dodgeballs, just another day in the life of our founding father and CEO, Eamonn Duignan. Thanks to Lonsdale Ave Magazine for the fantastic interview and spreading the Green Coast love! #community
