Recycling

Our company is an industry leader in recycling, ensuring that your waste streams are properly managed and diverted from landfill. Your waste materials are dismantled, treated and sent for reuse at one of our Canada-wide recycling facilities. Our recycling services are performed under strict adherence to government laws and regulations. We offer a wide range of recycling services for institutional, commercial and industrial clients:

Transformer Oil Recycling

We are a leading recycling specialist offering industrial, commercial and institutional organizations throughout Canada transformer oil recycling services. After draining small or large volumes of transformer oil, our fleet of transformer oil trucks and tankers safely transport it to one of our Ministry of the Environment (MOE) certified environmental services facilities, where it is rendered to eradicate all PCB content and other types of contamination, and converted for reuse or resale in Canada. To ensure complete protection in the event of a rupture or emergency spill, we use a portable "spill containment berm" which enables the transformer oil that our transportation service vehicles carry to be contained. We are also capable of filling your transformer with new silicone fluid, paraffinic or naphthenic based transformer oil, or our MODEF 60 type I or type II mineral insulating transformer oils.

Our MODEF 60 type I mineral insulating transformer oil is a recycled, napthenic based transformer oil that meets existing ASTM quality standards. Similarly, our MODEF 60 type II "supercharged" inhibited mineral insulating transformer oil can be added to existing transformer oil to halt the oxidation process that naturally occurs within transformers over time. Both variations of our MODEF 60 mineral insulating transformer oil are available in available in totes, drums or pails. For technical data on our MODEF60 mineral insulating transformer oils, please visit:

Our organization owns and operates a concrete contained, 700,000 litre capacity, geosynthetic membrane transformer oil tank farm for long or short-term transformer oil storage. We are also capable of providing silicone fluid level top ups for existing silicone filled transformers. For more information on our silicone transformer fluid, please visit MSDS silicone fluid.
