    Happy Holidays from Greentec

     

    Another year has come and gone - and what a year it was! As we take the time to reflect back on the year, we are thankful for the dedicated team we have, humbled by our accomplishments and excited for what 2018 will bring.

    A Year In Review

    Reflecting on 2017, we can’t help but be extremely proud of all we have done.

    New Customers and Business Growth
    We welcomed many new customers over the past year, and are proud that Greentec was not only able to help them securely dispose of their Data, IT Assets and E-Waste but also help them recover value from the recycling of electronics. Thank you for choosing to work with us!

     

    New Staff Expertise and Equipment
    Along with increasing our client base, we also expanded our talent and expertise with some new members to the Greentec family.

    • Anjali Purohit is our new Environmental Compliance Coordinator
    • Naomi Zweep is our new Sales Coordinator

    We also added five new production team members and a new secure truck to our expanding fleet.

     

    95% Waste Diversion Rate
    It is one of our core values to help divert as much waste from landfills as possible. Although we achieved an exceptional 95% waste diversion rate in our last audit, that means there is still 5% of all electronic waste that can’t be recycled. We’re shooting for the moon on this one and want to lead the charge to find solutions to help make 100% diversion a possibility.

     

    Continued Investment in Research Development
    To help support our 100% waste diversion goal we’ve chosen to increase our investment in R&D. This investment has allowed us to ramp up the projects we work on with the help of Professor Hamid Karbasi and his incredible faculty of staff and students in the Mechanical Engineering department at Conestoga College.

     

    Education and ITAD Compliance
    In the Spring, we worked with our partners at OECM and the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID) to produce and deliver an educational webinar about privacy compliance and ITAD.
