Services

At Davidson Environmental , character and quality play major roles in the services we provide. Along with our overall mission, vision and values, we pride ourselves on developing waste reduction and management strategies specific to each facility’s needs and goals. We focus on helping your company recycle, reduce and reuse all possible waste while providing all waste services necessary for any business to survive.

In doing so, we have identified four main benefits that we strive to bring to every facility we work with. Keep in mind that approximately 65% of all garbage is compostable as you consider these benefits:

COST EFFECTIVE

CLEAN

SIMPLE

RESPONSIBLE

  • No hidden fees
  • SAVES money on purchasing bags because our program does not require them!
  • SAVES your money on garbage pickups by reducing their frequency (because you’ll be diverting more waste!)
  • We pick up full totes and drop off empty, clean ones, keeping you from cleaning up dirty bins with residue waste.
  • No bags spilling or breaking since there are no bags used in the systems
  • Frequent pickups reduces odours & vermin
  • The system is easy to use
  • The waste can go directly into a tote and be wheeled away into the desired area without heavy lifting
  • All food waste with its packaging can be put into the bin, making the program easy to learn!
  • Enables you to achieve your sustainability goals

Davidson Environmental also provides all other waste services including grease traps, cooking oil and hood cleaning, and general waste/recycling. Click HERE for an informational brochure on the innovative FATBOXX® sealed totes, available now. Please call for quotes on any or all of these services.

What Happens After Your Organics Get Collected?

The BioSqueeze 200

The BioSqueeze 200 is the newest piece of equipment at Davidson Environmental and the first of its kind to process commercial waste in North America. This machinery allows us to properly separate all types of organic waste from their packaging, including canned goods, wrappers, and glass jars.

For example, if we put in expired granola bars, with their wrappers intact, this machine is able to separate the inorganic waste from the digestible organic waste. This then creates a nutrient dense slurry that is in a perfect composition for disposal at a BioGas facility as well as condensed ‘slugs’ of packaging that are the perfect candidate for waste-to-energy incineration.

The BioGas Process

The BioGas process is part of a biological waste treatment method used in waste treatment plants everywhere in the world. Most of us have heard of ‘composting’ as the way to recycle food waste, and although that process holds true during the BioGas process, the difference is that instead of releasing the gases produced during the fermentation process, the gases are collected and used as a fuel product. The break down of steps are as follows:

  1. Liquid organic waste, animal manure and solid organic waste is led into a digester where an anaerobic process using bacteria ferments the wastes and produces biogas as a gaseous bi-product.
  2. The remaining non-digestible solids in the digester are collected as a high nutrient ‘sludge’ or ‘compost’ that can later be returned to the ground as fertilization
  3. This biogas produced is further processed, resulting in a gas consisting of mostly methane. This is similar to natural gas obtained from the oil and gas fields.
  4. The methane and carbon dioxide gases can be stored under high pressures in cylinders or pumped directly back into the grid for use in both renewable electricity and renewable natural gas.
