Aevitas in Quebec is an industry leader in recycling, ensuring that your waste streams are properly managed and diverted from landfill. As a leading waste management provider, we provide our customers the ability to easily recycle transformer oil, batteries, and all styles of lamps. Waste materials are dismantled, treated and sent for reuse at one of our Canada-wide recycling facilities. Our recycling services are performed under strict adherence to government regulations and laws, and include:

Lamp Recycling

Our company is the largest lamp recycler in Canada, having pioneered a variety of lamp recycling techniques that can accommodate many needs. Compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and other energy-efficient lighting including linear fluorescent and high intensity discharge (HID) lamps contain small amounts of mercury (otherwise known as quicksilver), an element essential to achieving energy savings. As effective as it is at enabling white light, mercury is also highly toxic, and can release mercury contaminated phosphor powder or mercury vapour should a mercury-bearing lamp breaks (especially when it’s at end of life). Mercury does not decompose or break down in landfill, but it does bio-accumulate in our environment and in living organisms. Unlike specialty companies, Aevitas Quebec makes it incredibly easy to recycle lamps. Our company is the only one of its kind in Canada that can also recycle PCB ballasts, fixtures, transformer oil, batteries, and other electrical equipment. We also manage a resource recovery program for obsolete, end-of-life, and non-compliant assets. Please contact our recycling experts to learn more about our lamp recycling services, or our other recycling services that includes Recycle-By-Mail, transformer oil recycling, resource recovery, electrical equipment recycling, and battery recycling.

Our company has partnered with Loomis to offer economical recycling services to small quantity waste generators in Quebec and across Canada. Aevitas Quebec has a Recycle-By-Mail program that is ideal for shipping small quantities of bulbs, fixtures, ballasts, mercury bearing materials*, batteries, and lamps.

Transformer Oil Recycling

Aevitas in Quebec is a leading environmental services industry specialist that offers electrical utility companies and industrial manufacturers exemplary transformer oil recycling services. Our fleet of oil tankers and trucks permit us to drain and transport small or large volumes of transformer oil throughout Canada. For environmentally sensitive locations, our transformer oil recycling experts deploy our portable "spill containment berm", allowing our tanker or trucks full volume to be contained in the event of an emergency spill or rupture. Our Ontario Ministry of the Environment (MOE) certified transformer oil recycling facility receives, treats, and refines used transformer oil, removing virtually all PCB content within it to produce new, high grade transformer oil for re-sale in the transformer market.

MODEF60 Mineral Insulating Oil
A recycled transformer oil that is napthenic based, MODEF60 mineral insulating oil meets existing ASTM quality standards and is shipped throughout Canada. Our MODEF60 mineral insulating oil can be supplied by Aevitas in Quebec in either Type I or Type II formulations. Our type II "supercharged" inhibited transformer oil (available in pails, totes, or drums) can be added to existing transformer oil in order to halt the oxidation process that naturally occurs within transformers over time. Please view technical information for our type I and type II transformer oils by visiting:
