Walker Environmental Office in Ingersoll

For the past three decades, Walker Environmental has successfully and safely been operating waste facilities.

Walker Environmental is a subsidiary of Walker Industries and is one of Ontario's largest waste management and resource recovery companies. As Walker Environmental continues to invest in responsible growth nation wide, our focus is on three core core businesse areas; Waste Disposal, Renewable Energy, and Organic Waste.

 

Waste Disposal

Our disposal business provides critical infrastructure for our communities. As we move toward improving reducing, reusing and recycling as a province and country, there is still a need for safe, reliable waste disposal, which is something we provide. 

We operate two landfills, a waste transfer facility,  and two residential drop-off locations. We also have a trucking operation which hauls solid non-hazardous waste and recyclables as well as Walker Environmental products like finished compost product, mulch, and N-Rich (fertilizer made from biosolids).

 

Renewable Energy

Walker Environmental and Comcor Environmental Limited work together in a partnership called Integrated Gas Recovery Services (IGRS) as Canada's leading landfill gas utilization company.

IGRS harnesses the power of renewable energy. Our landfill gas utilization plants use the methane in landfill gas to produce both heat and electricity that is fed into the local grid and used by local industries. We turn an environmental liability into a renewable energy asset.

Renewable energy reduces our carbon footprint, lessens the load on our electrical grid and reduces our demand for fossil fuels. 

 

Organic Waste

Organic waste is any waste made up of organic material. All of our organics businesses create new value from waste by recovering the resource to be used again. At Walker Environmental, we process food scraps, leaves and brush, wood, biosolids from wastewater treatment plants, and food residuals like grease trap waste and used cooking oil. 

In our organics business, it's essential to match the technology we use with the feedstock (the waste). Our process has to add value so there is an end-market for the material. If we don't do this, then we're just making a more expensive waste. 

Walker Environmental operates nation-wide, with six biosolids management plants, four food residuals processing facilities, two composting facilities, three mobile grinders, and a mulch operation.
