TORONTO, May 11, 2016 /CNW/ - Canada Fibers Ltd. (Canada Fibers) today announced that it has commissioned a 100 thousand square foot operation north of Toronto to recover recyclable materials from municipal solid waste presently being sent to landfill. This highly mechanized facility is the first of its kind in Canada, positioning Canada Fibers to help its growing municipal and commercial customer bases to improve their sustainability and economics.
In late 2015, Canada Fibers acquired the facility located at Highways 27 and 407 in Vaughan, Ontario. Subsequent to acquiring the facility, Canada Fibers retrofitted the facility with advanced material sorting systems and significantly updated its environmental management systems. The facility was formerly known as the Dongara Pellet Factory, and has been renamed Canada Fibers High Diversion Material Recovery Facility.
"This unique facility enables the diversion of valuable materials from landfill, giving recovered materials a new life and reducing Green House Gasses," noted Mark Badger of Canada Fibers. He added that, "we are simply mining discarded resources to help our customers to achieve world-class sustainability and waste management efficiencies."
Canada Fibers Ltd. was established 25 years ago as a Toronto-based paper recovery and marketing operation. Since then, its operational scope has broadened to include recovery, separation and marketing of a wide variety of recovered materials, including plastic, glass, aluminum, paper and metal materials. Today, Canada Fibers' supply side customers include municipalities in the Province of Ontario, as well as institutional, commercial and industrial organizations. Through its affiliation with The Urban Resource Group Inc., the Company is engaged in the production of consumer and industrial products from the materials it recovers.
