Lamp Recycling

We are the only Canadian company that is also capable of recycling transformer oil, batteries, PCB ballasts, fixtures and other electrical equipment. Aevitas BC also manages a resource recovery program for non-compliant, obsolete and end-of-life assets.

Transformer Oil Recycling

Aevitas in BC is a leading Canadian waste management company specializing in providing industrial manufacturers and electrical utility companies across the country with transformer oil recycling services. Our fleet of trucks and oil tankers allow us to drain and transport large or small volumes from coast to coast, and within the province of British Columbia. For environmentally sensitive locations, our recycling experts will deploy a portable "spill containment berm", allowing our full truck or tanker volume to be contained in an emergency rupture or spill situation. 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, and producing new, high quality transformer oil for re-sale in the transformer market.


MODEF60 mineral insulating oil

A recycled transformer oil that is napthenic based, our MODEF60 mineral insulating oil meets existing ASTM quality standards and is shipped throughout Canada. Our MODEF60 mineral insulating oil can be supplied in either Type I or Type II formulations. Our type II "supercharged" inhibited transformer oil (available in totes, drums or pails) can be added to existing transformer oil so as 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:

Aevitas BC also maintains a supply of silicone transformer fluid (available in tote, drum, or pail form) which is recycled and reprocessed for use in either retro-filling or silicone fluid level top ups on existing silicone filled transformers. For more information on our silicone transformer fluid, please visit MSDS silicone fluid. For customers with long term transformer oil storage issues, our 700,000 litre capacity, concrete contained, geosynthetic membrane transformer oil tank farm can help. Should your industrial transformer require draining, refilling or an oil change, depend on our transformer oil recycling services for a job done well. Our staff work hard to perfect our transformer oil recycling services, as well as our other recycling services, to give you the best possible results!


Battery Recycling

Disposing spent batteries in landfills raises proven environmental concerns due to the toxins and chemicals they contain. Recycling batteries is an environmentally friendly alternative to conventional methods. Aevitas BC offers battery recycling services for the convenient disposal of your spent batteries with peace of mind knowing that you're positively contributing to the environmental and public health of British Columbia. No matter your type of batteries, Aevitas always ensures that their contents do not end up in your municipalities' ground or soil water. Our waste management experts recycle all sorts of spent batteries, including alkaline, lead acid, lithium batteries, mercury, nickel, cadmium and silver oxide. Please contact Aevitas BC to learn more about our battery recycling services, or our other recycling services.
