Trans Mountain and KLTP Donate $20,000 to the Wildlife Rescue Association

Trans Mountain and it’s general construction contractor responsible for the Lower Mainland portion of the Trans Mountain Expansion Project, Kiewit Ledcor Trans Mountain Partnership (KLTP), recycle all beverage containers used at our sites, including Westridge Marine Terminal, Burnaby Terminal and construction work areas along the pipeline route in Coquitlam and Burnaby.

With a workforce of more than 1,000, this recycling initiative takes a team effort. The process of retrieving the refunds requires the team to sort, label and return the containers.

After a year of consistent recycling efforts from our sites, Trans Mountain and KLTP were pleased to make a $20,000 donation to the Wildlife Rescue Association of BC (WRA) in December 2021 from its proceeds. Our environmental teams chose this local, non-profit organization because they support the overall well-being of our local wildlife and community.

The WRA’s mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and return injured and orphaned animals back to nature. While based in Burnaby, BC, WRA serves wildlife throughout the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley. Trans Mountain has supported WRA in the past from our Community Investment Program, including a $10,000 donation in 2019 to help the organization build a new medical treatment centre.

“Trans Mountain has a long-term relationship with the Wildlife Rescue Association of BC and it’s wonderful to see our workforce giving back in such a meaningful and tangible way,” said Lexa Hobenshield, Manager of Lower Mainland and Community Investment. “Our workforce is proud of the recycling efforts made to support WRA’s mission to help wildlife in need.”
