The electronics recycling firm eCycle Solutions, based in Toronto, has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the assets of Centre de Recyclage Électronique de la Montérégie (CREM), a Quebec-based electronics recycling firm.

Upon closing, CREM will operate collection and consolidation activities from its two Quebec facilities in Montreal and Quebec City. The processing will be performed at eCycle’s facility in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, Quebec.
