Electrical Equipment Recycling

Reducing the millions of tons of electrical equipment waste produced annually in Canada.


Back in the 1990's the worlds nations came together for the Rio Earth Summit and decided that the many problems associated with dumping electrical items into landfills had to be resolved. Problems like:

  • Heavy metals that accumulate through the food chain causing serious health effects in humans
  • Plastics which can leach into soil caused toxicity in wildlife and groundwater
  • An increase in the use of raw materials such as ores and oils to produce new electrical items

By keeping electrical equipment separate from other waste it can be treated so as to reduce the millions of tons of electrical equipment waste produced annually in Canada. Our organization offers commercial, institutional and industrial businesses electrical equipment recycling services to help reduce their environmental footprint contributing to climate change, as well as other serious ecological issues caused by electrical equipment piling up in our landfills.
