Article-Canada Fibers to Add Plastics Recycling Plant in Toronto

Canada Fibers Ltd. will build what it’s calling a technologically advanced plastics recycling plant in North Toronto.

The Toronto-based recycling firm will name the 160,000-sq.ft. facility Urban Polymers. The operation aims to create pure, homogenous plastic materials from post-consumer and post-industrial waste. The company will begin operations at the new facility this spring, according to a news release.

In its initial phases Urban Polymers will produce polyethylene terephthalate (PET) flake material, as well compounded polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) in pellet form.

Urban Polymers will be able to process 25 million pounds annually of PET and 11 million pounds annually of PP/PE during its initial stages.

Canada Fibers recycles paper, plastic, glass and metals and receives materials from Ontario municipalities as well as commercial operations.
