Greentec now one of the most advanced e-waste processors in Canada
Swiss technology allows for safe handling of LCD displays during the process of converting discarded electronics into new materials
Greentec, an Ontario-based e-waste recycling solutions company, now has exclusive technology to safely handle LCD displays during the process of converting discarded electronics into new materials, making it the most advanced e-waste company of its kind in the country, according to Greentec. The company uses innovative Lamp, LCD and Laptop waste recycling technology to remove the hazardous materials typically found in these items, including mercury vapours and other heavy metals. The automated procedure ensures there is no human contact with hazardous materials.
Having the right recycling technology for proper end-of-life electronics management is critical to ensuring the health and safety of people and the environment, says Tony Perrotta, President and CEO of Greentec.
"Our state-of-the-art e-waste technology handles hazardous waste materials so people don't have to," says Perrotta. "Minimizing the risk of exposure to toxins is critical for people, businesses, and the environment."
The technology, developed in Switzerland, safely processes e-waste and recycles salvageable parts in an environmentally-safe and responsible way. It does this by separating the hazardous particles and extracting valuable materials for further processing.
"We believe in using resources for as long as possible," says Perrotta. "We extract the maximum value of end-of-life electronics and then responsibly recycle the parts we can't use to keep our planet secure and waste-free. Our exclusive technology enables us to do this."
Provincial regulations require that mercury-added lamps be recycled, and Ontario's waste-free policy framework, the Waste-Free Ontario Act, includes new legislation to guide waste management toward recovering, reusing and reintegrating discarded materials back into production.

With an Acculoader automatic loading system, even smaller yards can take advantage of surging overseas demand for containerized scrap metal
Traditionally, recyclers across Canada have sent a huge percentage of their recovered scrap metal to Hamilton, Ontario, or Pennsylvania in the U.S., via open-top rail cars and truck trailers. The scrap is then melted down and turned into new steel. This is still the case for much of our scrap steel, but recently the growing trend toward containerization has introduced new opportunities for efficient, cost-effective shipping of both non-ferrous and ferrous materials to overseas markets.
