PRESS RELEASE: Shift Recycling Inc. and GEEP Canada to Merge into Quantum Lifecycle Partners LP

September 10, 2019 – Toronto, ON: The Canadian operations of GEEP Canada and The Shift Group of Companies (consisting of Shift Recycling and Revolution) have merged to form Canada’s most vertically integrated electronics recycler and ITAD services provider.
“I am excited to bring these two organizations together under one brand and one vision with two incredible shareholder groups.” said Gary Diamond, founder of Shift Recycling and President of the newly formed Quantum Lifecycle Partners. “There are synergies we will unlock to create a sustainable company for all our stakeholders, especially our team members and customers.”
The two companies will officially launch as Quantum Lifecycle Partners LP on October 1, 2019. Initially, no changes in day-to-day operations will be experienced and as Quantum begins to optimize operations, service offerings will expand for all our customers.
Quantum Lifecycle boasts unmatched reach across Canada with eight facilities in four provinces and over 400 employees dedicated to providing world class solutions to all of our customers and stakeholders.
“The devices we recycle, refurbish and resell along with the EPR laws under which we operate are becoming increasingly complex.” said Gary Diamond. “Quantum is well positioned to tackle both of these challenges with a sustainable corporate structure and scale required to service customers from coast to coast.”

PRESS RELEASE: Response to Popular Mini-Series Video Featuring GEEP Vancouver

 

 

Pertaining to some negative reviews tied to the recent release of a popular mini-series video, please know that GEEP is engaged in the business of managing compliant data security of ITAD assets.  Our secure and R2 compliant facilities, which offer hard drive destruction and data sanitization services, adhere to ensuring best in class security of our client’s data.  GEEP is not set up to sell retail computer and peripheral devices from our secure facilities and it is unfortunate this mis-understanding was not clear in the video segment.  We would be glad to direct individuals to our downstream partners who do handle such sales of data wiped, refurbished, quality devices.

GEEP collaborates with Canada’s Big Five banks to host a personal e-waste recycling event in the GTA from October 17th – 19th

In support of Waste Reduction Week, GEEP is pleased to work together with the five major Canadian banks (BMO, CIBC, RBC, Scotiabank and TD) to build awareness and educate consumers and companies alike about the environmental impacts of electronic waste also referred to as e-waste.

The e-waste recycling event, which will run daily from 7:30AM to 3:30PM, October 17th to 19th, provides a great opportunity for people working in the GTA to bring in their personal electronic waste items from home for responsible disposal.  There will be three e-waste collection locations: the main lobby of Commerce Court East (21 Melinda St., Toronto), south tower lobby of Royal Bank Plaza (200 Bay St., Toronto), and the Atrium of 100 Consilium Place, Scarborough.  E-waste items such as cell phones, computer components (hard drives, monitors, scanners, keyboards, printers, etc.), and home electronics (TVs, radios, CD and DVD players, etc.) are all acceptable materials for electronic recycling.  For a full list of acceptable e-waste items for collection, please visit: Ontario Electronic Stewardship (OES) – Electronics We Accept.

Waste Reduction Week in Canada, which runs from October 16th to 22nd, is a national environmental campaign that builds awareness around responsible waste management.

GEEP – Responsible Electronics Recycling in Action.

Forgotten TV Treasure to be Recycled is Returned to its Rightful Owner

(GEEP Barrie Facility and Cash Found)

GEEP is pleased to announce that Barrie Police Investigative Services have returned a forgotten treasure left inside an old TV, recycled at GEEP’s Barrie facility, to its rightful owner.

As reported by Barrie Today, Barrie Police Investigative Services have spent the past month trying to trace back and return the found treasure to its owner.

On January 13th of this year, an old television was dismantled at our GEEP Barrie facility, located at 220 John Street, when an employee found a cash box inside the TV with over $100,000 cash and some personal banking records, dating back over 30 years ago, to 1985.

The GEEP employee reported and handed over the items to the General Manager and police were involved to handle the matter accordingly.

GEEP commends the honest actions of our employees and staff and are happy to hear the money has been returned to its original owner.
