TTII Offers A World Wide Alternative To Artificial Turf Disposal In Landfills Producing Post Consumer Products

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 8, 2014 /CNW/ - Target Technologies (TTII), a leading material and logistics outsourcer to the synthetic turf industry, is pleased to announce its exclusive partnership with Kam Lee Trading Company of Hong Kong and its Canadian arm Poly-Pacific Inc. of Surrey, British Columbia.

Commenting on its new joint arrangement, TTII's Managing Director, John B. Giraud stated: "Many groups have approached us seeking environmentally-friendly options for disposal of used synthetic turf. We are very excited to provide a one-of-a-kind solution to keep synthetic turf from ending up in our landfills. Not only can the disposal of turf into our landfills be taxing on our environment, it can also be very expensive. Our system is very price competitive in comparison to landfilling in many parts of North America."

Even with regular maintenance, synthetic turf sport fields typically last 7-10 years before they need to be replaced. Progressive municipalities and school boards are finding it necessary to plan not only for their new field's installation – but also for an environmentally sound option for their field's disposal. With hundreds of fields being removed each year, the problem is increasing day by day. TTII's program offers an option that can give field and home owners a sense of pride that the footprint they've left behind is in the form of useful, reusable products.

TTII's system converts 100% of the synthetic turf (backing and fibers) and turns them into building products like posts, planks, lumber and irrigation pipe just to name a few. Any residual infill left behind in the turf is cleaned and reused. Once all material has been recycled, a certificate of compliance will be issued confirming TTII has fully complied with its commitment to convert the material into useful post-consumer products.
