Blue Box RecyclingIn partnership with our sister company – Services Matrec – we can collect, transport and process single-stream recyclables. Single-stream recycling is a lower cost alternative to the traditional dual-stream programs. In the single-stream recycling system, all recyclables, including plastic, cardboard, paper, glass, aluminium, etc., are placed in a single bin or cart for recycling. These recyclable materials are collected and taken to one of Services Matrec Material Recovery Facilities (MRFs) for processing. The materials are sorted into various commodity streams for sale to markets.

In an effort to support the beneficial reuse of tires for various innovative products, the Province of Ontario has introduced the Ontario Tire Stewardship. As approved collectors and haulers, we are helping reduce the number of tires being landfilled and giving them a new life. The recycled tires are turned into new products such as rubber mulch, door mats, rubber pavement and cattle mats. Contact us today to find out how we can help you safely dispose of your tires.
For more information about the OTS program, please visit their website www.rethinktires.ca.
Waste Electrical and Electronic Waste Recycling (E-Waste or WEEE)To divert potentially hazardous materials from our landfill, the Ontario Government has designated Ontario Electronic Stewardship (OES), a non-profit industry organization, to manage a program that encourages responsible reuse and safe recycling of old, used and unwanted electronic equipment.
Lafleche is an approved Service Provider for the 44 types of electronics accepted by the OES e-waste recycling program. All materials recycled are sent to an approved OES processor.
To find out more about what kind of electronic waste can be dropped-off at our facilities, please visit www.ontarioelectronicstewardship.ca.
We are also approved OES collectors! This means that we can provide a special enclosed bin and transport your e-waste to an approved processor. If you wish to host a special collection event, please contact us at 613-538-2776.
