GEEP and CFERs: Partners in Sustainable Development

DORVAL, QC, March 17 /CNW Telbec/ - GEEP (Global Electric Electronic Processing Inc.) is proud to announce that it further consolidates its alliance with the Réseau Québécois des CFER by expanding its already vast network of collecting points, operating under the name of e-colleX, allowing citizens, municipalities and Quebec's RCMs, to dispose at no cost of all obsolete electronic products, of Sony and Samsung brands, by leaving them at a CFER in the following cities: Asbestos, Drummondville, Lachute, Longueuil, Montreal, Rouyn-Noranda, Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Saint-Raphaël, Sorel, and Victoriaville.

In accordance with the agreement between GEEP and the CFERs, the CFERs will collect and sort the reusable technology from the end-of-life equipment and will then entrust them to GEEP, who will ensure the integrated and efficient management of such products, while respecting the highest standards in sustainable development, and in conformity with the EPSC standards. The CFER is a genuine school-enterprise that helps and supports the professional integration of teenagers who are faced with orientation/social challenges.

"The results obtained with the CFERs since April 2009 encouraged us to strengthen our relationship. We are particularly proud of this alliance, which enables GEEP to further support the CFERs' mission with youngsters while providing easier access to consumers who wish to dispose of their technology equipment in a sustainable and environment-friendly way," said Bruce Hartley, Vice President, Business Development for GEEP Ecosys.

The GEEP e-colleX sites make available convenient collection services for Original Equipment Manufacturers, businesses, institutions and individuals.

About the Réseau Québécois des CFER

Since the creation of the first Centre de Formation en Entreprise et Récupération (CFER) in 1990, CFERs are an alternative for students with difficulties who wish to obtain a professional certification. By training these young people, this formula hopes to change mentalities towards environment through reuse and recycling. The CFERs established throughout the Province of Quebec are much different than the traditional school institutions developed for youngsters with social integration challenges. The educational approach and supervision are governed by the following values: rigour, respect, effort, autonomy and commitment. CFERs offer a training program, sanctioned by the ministère de l'Education, du Loisir et du Sport, aiming at developing autonomous people, engaged citizens and productive workers.
