This expands on the companies current 25,000 square foot Toronto
recycling facility which reconditions major and small consumer appliances
and electronics redirecting product from landfills.
TORONTO, June 2 /CNW/ - ReturnTrax - Canada's leader in reverse logistics
- has just opened its second consumer products recycling center in Calgary,
Alberta. This facility will recondition major and small appliances along with
consumer electronics and other products for resale to the Canadian second
channel marketplace. Since 2007, ReturnTrax has managed the successful
redirection of some 70,000 major and small appliances from landfills by
applying the ReturnTrax reconditioning & remarketing process which reclaims
over 80% of used and damaged appliances the company receives into its
operations. This drives significant cost savings to local municipalities and
has a direct impact on the environment. Product that is reconditioned is sold
through the ReturnTrax national marketplace as well as its own retail outlets
branded The RE-Appliance Store.
Founding Partner Wayne Burgess says that 'without a fully active
reclamation approach to feed the second channel marketplace in Canada most of
this large and potentially hazardous product ends up in landfills, damaging
the environment and putting significant pressure on local municipalities
infrastructure and budgets'.
ReturnTrax manages reverse logistics for consumer product manufacturers
and retailers. The company provides an end to end product management solution
which includes best in class people, process and technology to help its
clients reduce costs, improve visibility to their returns and improve the
financial recovery of their assets. Their web address is www.returntrax.com.
