Now that construction is complete on the Sturgeon Refinery, its owners are tallying up the results of its construction waste recycling program.

For the approximately five years that the project was under construction, rows of giant bins were in place to collect materials including wood, drywall, steel, organics, concrete, and beverage containers.

Through that program, over 95 percent of construction wasted was diverted from landfills, North West Redwater Partnership said this week.

Some waste, including scrap metal and beverage containers, was able to generate over $500,000 in recycling revenue — all of which is being invested in the local community in Sturgeon County and surrounding areas.
