About Dan-X Recycling

DAN-X Recycling Ltd, locally based in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, is Nova Scotia’s first established mercury lamp recycling company.

In 2009, DAN-X was formed to implement a service to recycle all mercury containing products. With a passion for going green and an overwhelming desire to do things the right way, DAN-X has a goal of keeping hazardous materials out of the landfills throughout the province.

It started with the purchase of a state-of-the-art recycling plant from one the leading recycling companies in the world, Balcan Industries. This recycling plant is capable of processing and collecting mercury from household, commercial and industrial mercury containing products. Our recycling plant separates every piece of these mercury products for recycling and reusing in multiple applications, including glass, aluminum, steel, copper, plastic, glass, phosphor powder and mercury.

Our mission is to prevent as much mercury pollution as possible and reduce the level of hazardous waste that is commonly found in our landfills.

As we are an independent company without provincial or federal support, we continue to serve the public and businesses around us that have the same goals as us – to protect our earth.

Today, we are proud to say we have prevented thousands of pounds of mercury from entering our landfills since 2009, and we hope that future generations are pleased with our accomplishments of preserving and protecting our land from mercury pollution.

Let us help you with your recycling needs.

About Our Facility

Our plant was purchased from Balcan Engineering based in the United Kingdom and is the first of its kind to be sold and set up in Canada, processing 2000 lamps per hour. This unit is designed to accept all types of mercury containing lamps, including the incandescent bulbs that are being manufactured for household use. 

This business venture will put Nova Scotia first in this very important leadership role for recycling throughout Atlantic Canada.

With the high demand from local environmental agencies and groups, Dan-X Recycling’s aim is to help reduce the toxic and hazardous components that are getting into our atmosphere, and to lower power consumption. Dan-X Recycling has had rapid growth since its inception, and is committed to being a leader as an environmental solutions company with future plans to expand its services to all the Maritime Provinces.

As a final descriptive note, “Recycling is crucial for The Environment” and when Government puts final legislation in place to ban these products from entering our landfills, everyone will benefit from this much needed service dealing with household and commercial waste. This is certainly a milestone for our company, and we anticipate significant growth for recycling of mercury lamps in the years to come.
