1 City of Surrey Approach to a Fully Integrated Organic Waste Management System PCP National Measures Report 2012 June 27 th, :00 pm to 2:30 pm Webinar

2 THE VISION To fuel Surrey s waste trucks with renewable biogas generated from curbside organic waste 2

3 THE GOALS 1. Establish a Surrey Organic Waste Biofuel Processing Facility 2. Achieve 70% diversion from Surrey s residential curbside waste 3. Achieve Goals 1 & 2 in an economically sustainable manner 3

4 THE CATALYST City of Surrey Sustainability Charter (download at Metro Vancouver Integrated Solid Waste and Resource Management Plan (download at 4

5 THE APPROACH 4 Phase Process Phase 1: Phase 2: Phase 3: Phase 4: Determined % of organic waste contained within our garbage waste stream (COMPLETED) Determined viability of using CNG waste trucks for collection (COMPLETED) Determined and implemented best approach to curbside organics waste collection program using CNG waste trucks (COMPLETED) Establish an 80,000 metric tonne per year Surrey Organics Biogas Processing Facility (IN PROGRESS) 5

6 THE APPROACH Phase 1: Determined % of organic waste contained within our 60,000 tonne/year residential Garbage (landfill bound) waste stream City of Surrey: Total Waste Collected at Curbside Annually (100,000 households) Surrey s Garbage Composition (100,000 households) Diverted Recyclables 31,000 tonnes 26% Diverted Yard Waste 29,200 tonnes 24% Garbage (Landfillbound) 60,000 tonnes 50% Organic (Kitchen) Waste 65% Residual (nonrecyclable waste) 30% Recyclables 5% 6

7 THE APPROACH Phase 2: Determined viability of using CNG waste trucks for collection 2,500,000 Number of NGV Per Country: ,000,000 1,500,000 1,000,000 USA 110,000 Canada 12, ,

8 THE APPROACH Phase 2: Determined viability of using CNG waste trucks for collection Global Uptake of Natural Gas Vehicles from 2000 to

9 THE APPROACH Phase 3: Determined and implemented best approach to curbside organics waste collection program using CNG waste trucks Waste Market Readiness: Positive reception to using CNG trucks for waste collection. Implemented Pilot Waste Collection Program Nov 2010: 3-Cart System Using CNG Truck: Weekly Organics Collection Alternating Biweekly Garbage & Recycling Collection Pilot results: 50% drop in garbage tonnage Awarded Waste Collection Contract to Progressive Waste services (BFI Canada) in late 2011 for City-wide services using CNG trucks Surrey s new Rethink Waste Collection Program Initiated Oct 1 st,

10 THE APPROACH Results. Waste Diversion in 4 th Quarter 2011 versus 2012: 2011: Q4 Waste Composition 50.1% Waste Diversion 2012: Q4 Waste Composition 70% Waste Diversion Recyclables 23% Yard Waste 27% Garbage (landfill bound) 50% Recyclables 25% Organic (Kitchen & Yard) Waste 45% Garbage (landfill bound) 30% 10

11 Phase 3: Results. THE APPROACH 11

12 THE APPROACH Results. 12

13 THE APPROACH Phase 4: Establish an 80,000 metric tonne per year Surrey Organics Biogas Processing Facility P3 Approach P3 Canada Fund Approval in September 2012 $16.9 million contribution from Canada Next Steps: RFQ: Q RFP: Q Award: Q4 2013/Q Commissioning: 2015/

14 SYSTEM-WIDE BENEFITS Environmental Benefits 80,000 tonnes of organic waste diverted from landfill annually 24% (current) reduction in CO 2 e/year from CNG waste collection fleet that services Surrey Eventual 100% reduction in CO 2 e/year from CNG waste collection fleet based on use of renewable gas produced at biofuel facility CO 2 e/year reduction will also offset Surrey s corporate annual GHG s of 16,000 MT 14

15 SYSTEM-WIDE BENEFITS Economic Benefits: Annual Savings in Surrey s Waste Collection Costs: $3 million Annual Fuel Savings estimate: $730,000 (included in above savings) Capital Cost of CNG vs. Diesel Truck is 20% higher, however payback is estimated at 2 years Annual savings from Organic versus Garbage Disposal: $2 million/year Annual Sale of renewable gas Tipping rate revenues 15
