E-waste collection network expanding in Canada

E-waste collection network expanding in Canada

Global Electric Electronic Processing (GEEP), through its e-colleX network, recently announced a new collaboration with Mississauga-based Purolator Courier Ltd. Joining GEEP’s existing network of e-waste collectors throughout Canada, select Purolator retail locations began receiving end-of-life Sony and Samsung equipment at the beginning of July.   

Through the agreement, Purolator’s Freight division will transport the collected items to GEEP facilities across Canada for recycling. According to GEEP, this enhancement to the e-colleX network will provide customers of the company’s current OEM partners, Sony and Samsung, enhanced opportunities to utilize the network, and will provide added assurance that the e-waste handled will be responsibly recycled through to end of life. 

“This partnership is a pivotal opportunity for GEEP and Purolator to join together in Canada, leveraging our capabilities to help create a global green economy,” says Chris Gariepy vice president of international marketing at GEEP.  

“Purolator is pleased to leverage our extensive retail and LTL transportation network to support this important program. Our collaboration with GEEP will ensure that electrical and electronic items are reused or properly recycled, instead of buried in landfills,” said Joe Guimond, vice president and general manager at Purolator Freight.  

GEEP is a fully integrated global service provider, offering a complete solution for the management of used technology and end of life, electronic and telecommunications waste.
