    Electronics Recycling Company Uses Exclusive Tech for E-Waste Handling

    Greentec an Industry Leader in Safe and Responsible E-Waste Recycling
    Cambridge, ON | October 29, 2018 – Greentec, a Canadian e-waste recycling solutions company, 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. Greentec 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.
