TORONTO, June 12, 2012 /CNW/ - When a synthetic turf field reaches the
end of its useful life, a number of organizations are finding creative
ways to reuse system components. Worldwide Turf Canada is doing just
that and is the first company in Canada to bring this state of the art
green industry reclamation process to St. Michael's College School in
Toronto, ON. The College is replacing their 112,000 sq. ft existing
synthetic turf sports field with a Domo Sport Grass, Federation
Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) synthetic turf field.
"This is a very leading edge innovative initiative and we are extremely
excited to be the first company to utilize this field reclamation
process in Canada," said Steve Halbert, President of Worldwide Turf
Through Worldwide Turf Canada's green recycling initiative, all
components of the synthetic turf field can be either reused or
recycled. The benefit of reclamation of resources can result in a
considerable diversion in the amount of material heading to the
landfill in addition to providing considerable cost savings to the
Partnering with Sports Field Removal and utilizing specialized
equipment, TurfMuncher™ by FieldAway™, which enables the reclamation,
approximately 336,000lbs of the rubber infill at St. Michael's College
School will be extracted from the existing turf, where it will be
screened and cleaned, and then recycled as infill for the new field.
As for the 60,000lbs of existing synthetic turf that has reached end of
life and is being replaced, Worldwide Turf Canada partners with
companies such as CRM Crumb Manufacturers who use proprietary processes
to recycle 100% of the turf in construction of roads.
