Community and recycling stewardship
There’s a reason Cliff, Dan and Josh Chisick carry on the family business founded 100 years ago: it feels good to be in the the metal recycling business. Here are a few examples of our community and recycling stewardship initiatives:
Giving generously to organizations in the community
There are many deserving organizations in the community, so we give wherever there is need. We’ve supported the Health Sciences Centre Foundation, Winnipeg Harvest, Siloam Mission, CancerCare Manitoba, the Jewish Federation of Winnipeg, the Centro Caboto Centre Project Fund, the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, and the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada, to name a few. We are also proud to support the fundraising and philanthropic initiatives of our clients and customers. If you are looking for support for your event or organization, contact us today.
Providing good jobs to more than 100 Winnipeggers
The scrap metal business attracts a lot of interesting people — people tough enough to split a truck axle and kind enough to give you the shirt off their backs. There is a real camaraderie in this industry. It’s rewarding to provide good careers to more than 100 hard-working Winnipeggers. Our fun-loving and hard-working team has helped build our organization, so we are as loyal to our employees as we are to our customers.
Diverting 350 million tonnes of scrap each year
We’re one the largest metal recyclers between Northwestern Ontario and the Canadian Prairies, and we divert 350 million tonnes of scrap metal from the landfill each year. The metal we collect from our customers is prepped and shipped to mills and foundries around the world. These companies then turn it into useful new products.
It feels good to make a positive impact on the environment and help our customers reduce their carbon footprint. Compared to smelting iron ore, for example, metal recycling uses 33% less energy and produces less greenhouse gas emissions. We’re happy to do the dirty work to create a cleaner world.
If you want to work with a recycling partner that is making a positive impact on the environment and in the community, give us a call today.
