Noranda to open e-recycling facility

On March 5, 2003, Noranda Inc. announced that it plans to spend $3-million for an 82,200 square foot industrial electronic hardware recycling facility. The state-of-the-art operation, which will be built in Brampton, Ontario, will employee about 20 people and is expected to be operational this summer.

The new facility is expected to process approximately one million pounds a month of end-of-life electronics after ramp-up, and 100 per cent of all electronic hardware will be recycled. Electronics recycled will come from many sources across Canada including electronics equipment manufacturers, business, governments and municipalities.
