KC Recycling, a leading recycler in the Pacific Northwest for cathode-ray tube (CRT) glass from old televisions, lead-acid batteries, and electronic scrap, announces significant investments to add capacity for all of Canada’s scrap CRT glass. CRT glass recycling is critical because it recycles the lead content into new products and eliminates an environmental hazard that could arise from inadequate disposal of lead. KC Recycling has been a leader in this process for many years, processing most of the glass generated in western Canada and the Pacific Northwest.
In order to expand capacity, the company is adding an additional shift to the production schedule, creating new jobs in the Kootenay region of British Columbia. It is also investing significant capital in production equipment to increase daily throughput. The investments include an automated conveyance and storage system at the KC Recycling facility in Trail, British Columbia.
“The whole team at KC Recycling is proud to expand its operations to serve all of Canada,” said Pete Stamper, chief executive officer of KC Recycling. “The investments will help us to realize our mission of preserving a sustainable world for future generations — right here in the Kootenays, recycling with integrity and safety.”
