GR Environmental Inc.
With their experience, efficient, and reliable staff, GR Environmental is dedicated to become the number one call for anyone who needs a solution to their emergency environmental problems.
Green Response Environmental was formed in early 2019 by Joe Lima and Jon Legato to be the pinnacle of safety and efficiency in the environmental industry. In 1992 Joe started Stonecast Contracting LTD and merged with Jon in 2016 who at the time was running Haulmax Trucking and Bin Rentals. Joe’s expertise in the construction industry combined with Jon’s experience in waste management, trucking, and business development lead to the creation of GR Environmental.
GR Environmental promises to maximize efficiency because they understand the value of time in business and more importantly to reduce the effects that environmental hazards have on the world today. They own and operate their own equipment, trucks, bins, and more to ensure the quickest response time to minimize costs for their customers.
Director of Health, Safety, Environmental Services & Training
Timothy Cookney is retired from full time employment but joined Green Response as Director of Health, Safety, and compliance. Tim started off his career with 17 years in the printing industry before he decided to pursue his passion of helping people get educated in the dangers of chemicals to the environment. Tim started his 25-year journey in emergency response as a first responder at the technician level and quickly took on the role of On-site and Product Specialist.
Tim also is a certified health and safety educator and authored a Haz-Mat training manual endorsed by the Professional Standards Setting Body of Ontario, to be used as a training manual for Private Haz-Mat company responders and Professional Firefighters, in accordance with NFPA Standards.
Hamilton/Stoney Creek volunteer fire department asked Tim to join their team due to his extensive knowledge in environmental services and his Haz-Mat emergency response capabilities. Tim spent 15 years as a volunteer firefighter turning in his badge at the rank of Captain and as a certified training officer for Ontario Fire Marshall.
Green Response Environmental is extremely lucky to have Timothy Cookney as part of our team to transfer the knowledge and experience he has gained over the years to the next generation of first responders.
