The idea behind International Material Recovery was conceived in 2010 through the hard work and collaboration of the three founders. Over the next five years they built a company together. Today, IMR is a British Columbia based Canadian company operating a drywall recycling facility in Surrey, BC. Constructed in 2013 and servicing Metro Vancouver and beyond, our material recovery facility separates and recovers gypsum from waste drywall. The recovered gypsum is processed and used in the manufacture of new construction materials.

Since initiating production in 2014, IMR has built a loyal customer base by focusing on serving our customers' needs. Providing reliable services in a convenient location, IMR is a better way to recycle drywall.   

IMR supports local initiatives and is a member of the WMAbc, Coast Waste Management Association and RCBC. Authorized under Metro Vancouver Waste Licence B-045
