IPL Inc., a North American producer of injection-molded plastic products, announces that it has won a major contract for providing organic wheeled carts to The city of Calgary, Alberta. The contract, worth $13 million, includes key production and delivery of 325,000 organic rolling carts intended for the implementation of a new composting program beginning in summer 2017 in all single-family homes of the city.

"This new contract allows us to consolidate our leadership in the municipal sector across Canada,” says Paul Palazzo, vice president, sales and marketing of the IPL Environment division. ”This contract, and others to be announced, will help us increase production in our plants and accelerate the growth of our company."

In addition to food waste, paper plates and napkins will be composted, as will grass, tree branches and pet waste. The program was initiated as a pilot project in 2012, which allowed residents to test new habits, leading them to reduce their garbage by nearly half.

For more than 25 years, IPL has offered its clients a wide range of injection molded containers that are designed to meet the requirements of municipalities and industries regarding the recovery and processing of waste. These products are all available with several options and graphics, allowing IPL to offer a product tailored to the specific needs of customers.
