Systems Company Inc. (RSC) was incorporated in July of 1992 and
started operations in August 1992 as a pilot project for recycling
waste stream aerosol cans that were collected by Alberta Environment,
Action on Waste at the various "Household Toxic Round-ups"
throughout Alberta. The 300 barrel pilot project was successful
and the remaining 470 barrels of aerosols were released to RSC for
processing. Attached to the operating permits was a letter allowing
RSC to import recyclables from across Canada. Marketing focus was
shifted to private industry collections and proved to be successful
insofar that RSC was the first and only processor/recycler in Canada.
In 1993, RSC
was awarded a contract to process other pressurized cylinders that
were collected at the closed down "Dew Line" sites across
the Arctic. Again, RSC was the first and only company in Canada
to tender a quote to major waste management companies for processing
and recycling this waste. A big volume of this waste was acetylene
bottles requiring a need to develop specialized equipment to process
their cylinders. RSC has been awarded numerous contracts over the
years from major gas suppliers resulting in complete processing
success, adhering to environmental and health guidelines.
operations in 1997 by purchasing Terra Impact Management (TIM) from
Chemical Recovery Systems Inc. that was operating as a distributor
of drycleaning fluids to drycleaning firms in Alberta and providing
a service to remove their waste and have this recycled. The next
logical activity was solvents for autobody shops and servicing this
recyclable commodity. Waste clean up and consulting contracts followed.
With the acquisition, the principal of CRS joined RSC and is currently
a shareholder and Vice President of RSC.
