Who we are

Terrapure Environmental is a trusted partner for industrial environmental solutions. We help customers solve their complex environmental challenges effectively and efficiently, so they can focus on their core business. We have a long and proven track record of providing safe, professional and reliable service to all industry sectors.

If we don’t already have the ideal solution to your waste management needs, we'll find it. Our continuous improvement culture and extensive expertise in the areas of technical and process development are just a couple of the many advantages of working with Terrapure.

Why work with Terrapure

Partnership

Terrapure is more than a service provider. We partner with you to get to the root of your environmental and waste management challenges to come up with the right solutions for your specific needs. This means we bring the best available people, processes, technology and services to meet your needs – whether through our facility network or right at the source on your site.

Creative problem solving

Not all waste or environmental issues are complex, but when they are, we’re up for the challenge of solving them. Our technical experts specialize in finding innovative solutions to the toughest environmental issues. We’re always searching for new technologies and refining traditional processes to transform waste into valuable, reusable products. If there are efficiencies to be gained, we will find them.

Efficient, cost-effective solutions

Just because we’re highly invested in waste, it doesn’t mean you are. If your priority is fast and affordable service, you can count on Terrapure to manage your issues efficiently, affordably and with minimal (if any) disruption to your business.

Safe, certified work

Our zero-harm mindset means the safety of employees, customers, the environment and communities is our top priority. It means following all health, safety and environmental regulations to the letter, and taking the time to ensure that everyone on our team is fully trained in proper safety procedures. We're good at what we do because we don't compromise.

Sustainability driven

We are in this business because we care about reducing environmental impact. For you, that means we help save transportation and disposal costs by finding ways to minimize waste, or by recovering valuable resources for reuse and recycling. By looking to exceed environmental regulations, we help you avoid penalties and improve brand reputation.

Safe, reliable, professional service

We show up on time and do the job well with a constant eye on health and safety. We are transparent in everything we do, from the way we communicate to the way we handle even the most routine paperwork. Professionalism means we understand, follow and, wherever possible, exceed regulations—and your expectations. You can count on us to do the right thing, the right way, day in and day out.

Operations from coast to coast

Terrapure has an integrated network of facilities across Canada, as well as onsite services with the ability to set up our operations directly on customers' sites when and where it makes sense. We are wherever you need us to be.
