Greentech Lead Australia: Sims Metal Management, through
its Sims Recycling Solutions (SRS) division, has acquired the assets of Genesis
Recycling, a Canadian provider of electronics and small appliance recycling
solutions to business, government and industrial customers.
Genesis, which holds current ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS
18001 and Responsible Recycling (R2) Practices certifications, has demonstrated
expertise in all aspects of recycling, safety, logistics, customer service, and
the handling of environmentally sensitive materials within a proven framework
for continued growth, the company said.
“We are excited to have the Genesis team join the SRS
family,” stated Steve Skurnac, President, SRS, Americas. “With our strong
presence in Ontario and Eastern Canada, this acquisition was an attractive
opportunity for SimsMM to enter Western Canada and further strengthen its North
America SRS electronics recycling business.”
