September 20, 2011 Norampac announced that its Burnaby Mill (recycling) is shutting down no later than December 2011.
This is a sad day, when a domestic mill has to shut down. The capacity of this mill was not huge at 128,000 Metric Tonnes of product output per year, but nonetheless it will change the dynamics of cardboard recycling in the Pacific Northwest.
On Saturday, July 9, the Urban Impact Events and Festivals team was out in full force to help the Tour De Delta's Brenco Criterium race go green. The Tour De Delta's fast and furious Brenco Criterium took place in the historic fishing village of Ladner. This year's Criterium was very exciting to all who attended- the cyclists manipulate the tight corners of the downtown core. The weekend brought more than 5000 spectators out to celebrate cycling excellence in Delta.
On February 12/13, the Urban Impact team was on hand at the City of Richmond’s Winterfest Weekend at the Richmond Oval to help the festival go green.
