The Sims Recycling Solutions (SRS) division of Sims Metal Management Ltd. (SMM), based in New York, has acquired the assets of Genesis Recycling Ltd., based in Langley, British Columbia, Canada, expanding its North American electronics recycling business.

Genesis provides recycling services for electronics and small appliances to business, government and industrial customers in British Columbia. The company presently holds ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 and Responsible Recycling (R2) Practices certifications.

“We are excited to have the Genesis team join the SRS family,” says Steve Skurnac, president of SRS Americas. “With our strong presence in Ontario and Eastern Canada, this acquisition was an attractive opportunity for Sims Metal Management to enter western Canada and further strengthen its North America SRS electronics recycling business.”
