Metal recycling is Canada’s most valuable export, with more than $20 billion in annual revenues.
The country also produces more than a billion metric tonnes of steel, aluminum and other raw materials each year, and Canada’s metals processing industry is booming.
Metal recycling companies, which are allowed to recycle only metals that they already make, have been operating in Canada since the 1980s.
The Canadian market is home to a number of companies that specialize in processing metals.
The company that handles the process is called “Lift” and it processes metal at a plant in Victoria, Ont.
It was founded in 1988 by retired police officer and metal recycler John DeFazio, who started the company in 2004 after he left his police career.
In 2012, Lift was one of two major Canadian companies to win a contract to recycle heavy metals from the Port of Vancouver, the country’s biggest port, after the U.S. Department of Justice demanded that the Canadian company pay more than US$1 billion in fines.
It’s the first time a Canadian company has won a major metal recycling contract.
In 2015, Lift received a second Canadian metal recycling government contract to collect the metals from a Port of Montreal port.
The metal recycling market in Canada is estimated to be worth $20.6 billion, according to a report by the Canadian Institute of Municipal Affairs.
The metal recycling sector is a growing sector with more Canadian-owned metal processing companies than anywhere else in the world.
The government also allocated $1.5 billion in 2016 to support the industry.
Lift has received a number, but not all, of the government’s environmental permits.
A recent audit by the government revealed that the company was still failing to meet the government emissions limits.
In June, Lift agreed to pay $1 million in fines for violating environmental regulations.
The Canadian Association of Metal Recyclers said the fines were a result of lax controls by Lift and the lack of a dedicated environmental assessment unit.
“Lift’s lax environmental controls were a contributing factor to a huge amount of metal being diverted through their process,” said Cmdr.
Steve Smith, the group’s president.
Lifting has received $1,921,935 in funding over the last five years, Smith said.LIFT has received up to $2.2 million from the Canadian government in government grants and contracts.
