November 10, 2014, Cochrane, Alta. – A paper towel landfill
diversion project pilot program in Cochrane, Alta. has provided positive
results for both Executive Mat Service and Cochrane RancheHouse.

 

According to a story from the Cochrane Eagle, the original
pilot project ran from July-December of 2013. However, the success of the
program has caused the program to continue for both parties.

 

The program involves paper towels from Cochrane RancheHouse
being collected in an eco-green collection bin. The towels are collected by
Executive Mat Service each month at the same time that they visit the
RancheHouse to swap out the mats. The towels are then put in to a biomass
boiler that heats the water for its laundry.

 

The collected data showed that the project caused a
reduction 2,200 pounds of CO2 landfill emissions.
