As the leaves start to turn and fall from trees and the weather gets colder, it is a good time to prepare for upcoming winter storms.  British Columbia’s Lower Mainland experienced powerful winter storms last season. This year, it is expected that cold weather, snow, and ice storms will rival last year’s winter conditions. These predicted weather conditions will have a significant impact on day-to-day business operations throughout British Columbia.

Why Prices Recycling  Materials Fluctuate

Many customers wonder why the price of recycling materials swing wildly and quickly.  We do too! 

Pricing for recycling materials is based on supply and demand and the market is global.  In the Pacific Northwest, we have a robust market for materials with plenty of domestic mills in the region and a vibrant export market that utilizes our west coast ports. Historically, these two factors usually keep the pricing of recycling materials relatively stable and demand active.

Finally, it feels like spring might have arrived in the Pacific Northwest!  It feels wonderful to have warmer weather but hopefully not too warm this spring and summer.

As with other businesses, Urban Impact has been impacted by COVID and all of the supply chain issues that we know and feel in many aspects of our lives.  Supply chain delays have impacted our operations in many ways including: delays in deliveries, shortage of bins and containers, uniforms for our teams to name a few.
