FCM Recycling began its operations in 1991 as a local ferrous/non-ferrous recycling facility located in Montreal. Over the years, FCM Recycling identified the need for specialized recycling services for electronic end-of-life materials. Using its gathered knowledge in the metals recycling domain, FCM Recycling transformed itself into one of Canada’s largest recyclers of electronic end-of-life materials, operating five (5) certified recycling facilities across Canada, each with an exemplary environmental, health and safety track record.
Why FCM ?
FCM operates each one of its five (5) recycling facilities across Canada in complete compliance with the highest industry standards set forth in the Canadian Recycler Qualification Program . Our operations are run in accordance with ISO’s 9001 and 14001 management systems and we are in the process of obtaining our R2/RIOS certification. All hazardous materials contained in the electronics recycled with FCM are safely treated, handled and recycled.
FCM is continuously investing in new, more advanced recycling technologies – our state of the art shredder shreds up to 15,000 pounds of electronic products per hour and we operate one of the most advanced plastics laboratories in our industry.
We customize recycling solutions to best fit our clients’ needs. We offer our clients various collection options – we have a fleet of trucks and offer pick and pack service, consolidation service and secure transport to name a few. We leverage our size and client base to achieve economies of scale and provide our clients with industry-best rates and rebates. Depending on our clients’ need, we can arrange for on-site inspection, shredding video recording and serial number tracking and confirmation to provide further peace of mind. A Certificate of Destruction is issued in respect of each lot of material received for destruction and recycling – we stand behind our guarantee to ensure the most secure data destruction.
We have a zero-landfill objective. All of our downstream recycling partners participate in our downstream audit program which involves regular oversight to ensure that our partners mirror our commitment to legal and regulatory compliance.
Your material is tracked through our proprietary material tracking system from the moment it enters our facility to the point of final disposition – this granularity in reporting is unique in our industry and gives us the flexibility to report to our clients their actual weights recycled to the kilogram.
