Mike Hare, Sales and Marketing Manager for CanPipe, joins Ground Water Canada editor Colleen Cross to share the results of a recent survey about current practices among contractors and look at current and expected legislation relating to single-use plastics and other materials.

In this podcast we talk with Jo-Anne St. Goddard, executive director of the Circular Innovation Council, about what the council and government are doing to help us reduce, reuse and recycle, and, specifically, what the groundwater industry can do to reduce their environmental footprint.

The Circular Innovation Council’s mission is to inform and educate Canadians about the generation of waste, the avoidance of waste, the more efficient use of resources and the benefits and/or consequences of these activities.

Jo-Anne will help us sort out regulations and recycling as they relate to the groundwater industry, specifically domestic water-well and dewatering well drilling sites. We’ll also discuss how the regulations work for industrial recycling versus residential recycling.

It’s straight talk aimed at helping your business be on the leading edge of sustainability.
