Now celebrating its’ 10th year anniversary 2cg Inc., with offices in London and Edmonton, has carved out a national and international niche providing waste diversion expertise. Since its start as an environmental consultancy that provided primarily composting expertise, the company has grown and now also provides waste characterization, recycling and training services.
Owner and President Paul van der Werf has over 14 years experience in the waste management industry. He’s a recognized composting and recycling expert and was accepted as a waste management and waste diversion expert witness at a recent Ontario Municipal Board hearing.
2cg’s philosophy is to move beyond book knowledge and to capitalize on its significant hands-on experience to provide relevant and meaningful expertise to those wanting to start or revise waste diversion programs. Some of 2cg’s more notable projects have included: helping Lake Louise redefine its recycling program; teaching students from Newfoundland to Vancouver Island how to compost; working with a nuclear power plant to characterize its non-hazardous wastes; working with various Ontario municipalities to better recycle plastics and other wastes; helping the Irish government devise a marketing plan for compost; and, working with clients from Edmonton to Prince Edward Island to better operate composting facilities.
Says van der Werf, “We are grateful for the opportunities afforded to us in our first ten years and look forward to the challenges and opportunities of the future.”
