Walker Industries 2014 Sustainability Report

Sierra Septic Solutions Purchase

Walker Environmental Group’s purchase of Sierra Septic Solutions Ltd. in September strengthens our organic waste services and grows our waste diversion business. Based in Red Deer, Alberta, Sierra had provided grease trap collection services across the province for our Organic Resource division as well as its own customer base.

Organic Resource provides liquid organics collection and processing services across Canada. Organic Resource manages wastes from restaurants, grocery stores and food processing operations. Our treatment facilities process organic wastes by separating the aqueous phase from the organics. The aqueous phase is treated for discharge to the sewer.

The organic phase becomes feedstock for anaerobic digestion to generate clean renewable energy. Our grease trap collection supports municipal sewer bylaw compliance by removing fats, oils, greases and organics that cause damage to the infrastructure, including line ruptures and spills.

Sierra Septic now operates as Organic Resource.

“The purchase of Sierra’s grease trap operations allows us to more directly service our national and regional customers in Alberta and helps Sierra to provide a greater range of services and reporting to its existing customer base in Alberta.”
Mike Watt, Executive Vice President of WEG
