I have incorporated HH Recycling Ltd.

Now we can start using my scrap profits for buying equipment to recycle things in our town that we have a lot of trouble with.

I don't know how successful it will be but I think we are going to start with refrigeration and work our way into tires. I am in the middle of completing Canada's Ozone Layer Protection Awareness Program so I can safely evacuate the refrigerant from fridges, freezers, air conditioners, etc. Once the refrigerant is gone, I can scrap the units for their copper, etc. Once I have my certification I will sell my stored up copper and purchase the equipment needed for the procedure. I think I can get away with one off of Amazon to start. It won't be getting a lot of use while I am just working in our dump so it should do fine for me to learn on. If I am able to

Once there is enough money earned from the scrap to buy a shredder, we will be able to start shredding tires and separating the steel belts from the rubber and work towards being able to create products from the recycled rubber which will cut out the shipping to the lower mainland which is about 13 hours each way.
Right now the only tire recyclers are down there so the tires have to be shipped down there at a huge expense and then the products are shipped up here to sell. Why not figure out a way to do it all here and keep the money in the north?

Obviously I have no idea if it's even feasible but I do know that if we can at least turn the tires into crumble here, we can get a lot more weight on the trucks and get a better price for it. Or it will all get shot down in flames by the powers that be. Only time will tell.
