Welcome to 2013! We hope you enjoyed the Holiday Season.
Perhaps as one of your new year’s resolutions, you have decided to clean-up and recycle some of the odds and ends around the house or business. You can put your junk in your trunk and just head off to one of our locations in either Mississauga or Oakville. Or, you can consider what could be done to add value to your scrap metal and ensure that the trip is as worthwhile as possible.

Nike Pop Up Store in Tokyo
One of the newer innovations that we have seen in retailing over the past few years is the development of “Pop-up Stores”. You will recognize these, as they seem to just appear in a particular space for a relatively short period of time and then disappear. As we approach the Halloween and then the Christmas Season, we will see more of them.
The trend has been adopted by a number of well-known companies including Nike, Walmart and Target to name just a few. These pop up stores offer a low cost way to heighten brand awareness, promote particular product lines and, of course, to entice consumers to spend.

As anticipated in a post we did about a year ago, the federal government announced the demise of the penny in its March 2012 budget. In about six months from now, the Royal Canadian Mint will stop distributing the coin and they will be removed from circulation over time. There is no end date to the process so we can continue to use them and they will retain their value as long as they are around.
We are not alone in this exercise. There are quite a number of countries who have already stopped using their low value coins.

While there have been many new technologies introduced into the recycling industry over the past few decades, in this blog we want to highlight two recent exciting developments. One is in Canada and the other is in the U.S.
You can be forgiven if the patented process called reverse polymerization does not happen to be in your lexicon . We hadn’t heard of it either until someone brought it to our attention in connection with the various technologies being applied to the problem of recycling the 12 million plus end of life vehicle tires that are generated in Ontario each year.

As you may or may not have noticed, we have taken a brief blogging hiatus over the summer months as our attention was turned towards getting our new location in Oakville up and running. It is now fully operational and we are extremely pleased with the reception we have received from the public, the trades and industry in the community and surrounding municipalities.
As part of this process we also created a new home page for our web site which features, among other things, a price chart that will provide visitors with up to date rates on some of the more popular metals we purchase.

We’re very pleased to announce that we will be opening a new location in Oakville, Ontario later this month. This is an exciting project for us, as it will make it more convenient for all our Oakville based customers (individuals, trades and industry) and, more importantly, it will strengthen our efforts to become a truly community-based service company.
Oakville is the ideal Canadian city, with a wonderful mix of old and new, a fabulous waterfront and a strong industrial and business base.
Oakville Is One Of Canada’s Most Desirable Cities.
