Although Canada Fibers started as a paper recycler, our operations have evolved to include recovery and supply of a wide variety of recycled materials including paper, cardboard, plastics (1-7) and metals. We also have the capability to process dry mixed recyclables. In 2015, Canada Fibers launched the Urban Resource Group, expanding operations further to include the production of sustainable products such as polymers, garden mulch and wooden fuel pellets.
When material arrives at the Material Recovery Facility (MRF), it goes through a mechanical and manual sorting process. Fiber (paper and cardboard) are separated from containers (plastic, metal and glass), and then each material is sorted into its own category. Once sorted, material is baled and sold to end markets around the world.
We ship recovered materials all over the world–from local markets in Toronto, to markets throughout Canada, the United States, Europe, South East Asia and the Pacific Rim.
