Committed to Improving Business and Industry Standards...
Here at Urban Meadows, we are committed to improving our practices not only as a business but setting industry standards. That's why we are working hard along with the University of Waterloo in salt research to help reduce salt usage and waste within the snow removal industry. We also work with Smart about Salt to help inform our clients and the public on the importance of the reduction of salt usage.
Our crews are very excited to be part our extensive research project with the University of Waterloo. The only one of its kind in the world and its all being done right here in Ayr, Waterloo and the GTA!
Our hopes is to help reduce not only our salt usage but the industry as a whole!
The implications of salt in our water ways and in the ground have huge impacts that we are only starting to see in our everyday life. Sodium levels are at their highest levels.....ever.
Our goals are to find the "right" amount of salt that will ensure our roadways, parking lots and sidewalks are safe for everyone while ensuring our children have the same safe drinking water that we take for granted everyday!
We take this "salt" thing very seriously and so should you....
All our salting crews have been trained on applying the right amount of salt at the right time.
Each salter is equipped with a on board scale system to monitor all our salt applications at every single location we service.
