BC firm charged in export case
By Editorial Staff, Resource Recycling
British Columbia-based Electronics Recycling Canada has been charged with illegally exporting hazardous materials, including lead-acid batteries and CRT displays.
ERC, and its president Sai Feng Guan, are due to appear in provincial court April 17. The company faces 24 counts of illegally exporting material to Macau between August 14 and November 10, 2011, in violation of Canada's Export and Import of Hazardous Waste and Hazardous Recyclable Material Regulations.
The Basel Action Network, which has been tracking the company since 2006, alleges there are many more incidents of illegal exports not included in the indictment.
