We mainly are using it as rigid packing material, currently. We have a few other minor uses, as well. We also have some other possible applications/ideas that are only in the developmental stage. Good to know there are others out there trying to keep it out of landfill.

Electronics Recycling (Canada) Co. Ltd. (Ontario Division)

c/o

To Whom it may concern, thank you taking time from your busy schedule to review this letter, we briefly discussed the ongoing subject of electronics, plastics and styro foam recycling, as well the benefits of a recycling partnership. At Electronics Recycling (Canada) Co. Ltd (ERC) our goal is to find a common ground, with regards to the recycling efforts for Electronics Recycling (Canada) Co. Ltd and your company.

Electronics Recycling (Canada) Co. Ltd is always looking at the possibility of providing electronics, plastics, styro foam and the speciality items recovery program that would compliment your existing recycling programs. Our recycling service fees are based on the formulation of offsetting rates that are always less than that of the land fill costs. We provide recycling services to all levels of government, multinational corporations, institutions, local communities, electronic manufacturers, retailers, commercial, industrial and all other e-waste generators to eliminate e-waste from entering landfills and incinerators.

The Future of E-Cycling in Canada Electronics Disposal Bans: Nationwide, Provincial & Territorial When the Federal government receives recommendations from Electronics Product Stewardship Canada, it is expected to implement programs leading to the banning of prohibited electronics from landfill sites. This initiative is expected to lead Provincial Governments to require electronics manufacturers and E-waste generators to accept cradle-to-grave responsibility for their products. A total ban on all classes of E-Waste from transfer stations and landfills throughout Canada could occur as early as 2005, based on recommendations from EPS. The implementation of local E-Waste regulations will vary from Province to Province. It is anticipated that British Columbia will be the first to accept an electronics ban, thusly legislating a total ban of electronics form the landfills, perhaps as early as Quarter 1 of 2005. Alberta and Ontario are expected to follow shortly thereafter.

Company Profile Electronics Recycling (Canada) Co. Ltd. (ERC) specializes in the management and recycling of electronic, plastic and stryo foam waste. Our unique and proprietary ‘Closed Loop’ system, with manual disassembly as its cornerstone, focuses on environmentally friendly methods of handling e-Waste that require NO burning and NO land filling, and results in NO chemical leaching, with complete recycling of materials and zero pollution.

ERC has also widened its efforts to protect the environment and human health as well as reduce the demand for landfill space by adding the recycling of plastics and Styrofoam to its system. Among the plastics recycled are plastic film and shrink-wrap (see Plastic Acceptables by Grade). ERC supports, promotes and complies with international standards of environmental quality and regulatory compliance in its operations. It confidently issues certificates, ERC offers two certificate programs, a Certificate of Recycling and one Certificate of Destruction to assure clients that it assumes full environmental responsibilities and liabilities associated with all used or obsolete electronic products it takes from them. ERC’s goal is to keep toxic materials out of landfills, groundwater and the air we breathe while providing an economically viable means of recycling and recovering reusable materials. As a result, its processing methods follow globally accepted ‘best’ practices for recycling e-waste as well as the guidelines set by ISO standards.

Our goal is to provide an environmental solution to the waste generators by taking away their environmental liabilities. The ERC recycling process has zero waste and a complete reuse rate. We are looking forward to working with your company as one of our strategic partners in the development of this dynamic environmental program.

Consequently, please call me or I will give you a follow-up call in a few days after you have had an opportunity to review this information. This recycling initiative will save your company, on their bottom line as well provide the environmental benefits.

Sincerely,

Don't know of anyone in the Toronto are that would accept it, but we likley would, starting sometime this summer. Problem would be getting it here. At this time we have so much material available to us that it doesn't pay to have to cover the shipping of out of province originating materials to Winnpipeg. If you firm covers the cost of getting it here,we likely will accept it.

Postnum: 48 EntryID:470
I am looking for companies that use 2"eps and have end pieces that need to be re-used. I am not a recycler of this product however I would be able to put pieces that are 6"x12"x2". to use in a environmentally sound way. Pieces that are bigger are fine as well.

I am based in Ontario and I was wondering if you had any contacts in this area that I could contact about my request.

Thanking you in advance Jan borkowski Executive Coordinator Icon Building Products Inc
