“If it ain’t broke don’t fix it” can be valuable advice to any enterprise trying to keep a close eye on business expenditures, but if it is broken, you’ll want it fixed in the most efficient way possible. For older electrical equipment that has performed well into old-age but is now showing signs of fatigue and is maybe halfway to the bone yard, the first idea for getting things back to normal may be replacement. Replacement of your older systems with new, higher-tech (albeit more expensive) equipment, though, is only one potential solution. An alternative would be to fix existing equipment back to proper working order, if possible. At Civic Recycling we carry Obselete Brands!

Reconditioned as Good as New

Why replace an entire system when only small parts of it are giving you trouble? Repairing instead of replacing is almost always the less expensive route to take. It takes less time and money to replace a single bad breaker with a high-quality (though obsolete) reconditioned one than it takes to replace an entire panel. In addition, having access to lightning-quick service like we provide here at Civic Recycling can save an operation a great deal of down time, providing more savings.

What’s It Going to Take?

If you’re dealing with equipment that’s gone out-of-date or been discontinued, proper parts can be difficult to locate/obtain. That’s where a specialist dealing in obsolete electrical equipment becomes so important. Finding obsolete parts like circuit breakers from Bulldog, Sylvania, Commander, CEB, Westinghouse, Cutler-Hammer, GE, ITE, Square D, Siemens and Taylor is certainly possible, especially for someone able to surf the Internet for potential providers. Once your item has been found, however, it’s critical that you ensure it’s been properly refurbished, tested and certified to perform as it should. A written guarantee is also a plus. Our surplus supply will make sure you always have what you need.

Consult the Certified Specialists in New and Used Electrical Equipment

Being certified in reconditioning and testing used, obsolete equipment is no small deal. Our technicians are PEARL-certified. This sets us apart from all our Canadian competitors. PEARL, the Professional Electrical Apparatus Recyclers League, is approved by ANSI, the American National Standards Institute, setting regulatory standards longer than anyone, as an accredited Standards Developer.

Our technicians are trained and experienced in totally reconditioning used and obsolete breakers, repairing where needed, testing, certifying and then guaranteeing each unit we sell for a year’s time. When you need new and used electrical equipment, think of being civic and, when possible, recycling! Call us.

Astonishing Stock Selection from Civic Recycling

As Canada’s leading expert and its largest provider of circuit breakers nationwide, Civic Recycling maintains an enormously large inventory of all types of breakers, transformersfusesmotor control units, service panels, and a wide variety of electrical supplies. Our catchphrase, “From the obsolete to the obvious!” says it all when it comes to our coverage of electrical items and systems, both new and reconditioned. We’re known across Canada for being the “go to guys” when it comes to finding old, obsolete molded case circuit breakers (MCCB). Our stock selection is excellent and we have about every size there is.

But what makes our used MCCBs unique is that every single one goes through extensive testing and reconditioning before being allowed to go back into service, a process conducted by our staff of certified breaker technicians.

Outstanding Stock Selection and Brands

We create outstanding stock a couple of different ways in our business, both of which represent an excellent opportunity for our customers to benefit. When we run into a great buying scenario for something we want to stock, we may overbuy just because we’ll have the opportunity to sell these items at significant discounts to our clients which, of course, they appreciate.

Since we purchase a good number of used items that we test, recondition and then resell, we may also find companies out there that have accumulated outstanding stock of either new or used electrical items that they want Civic Recycling to buy from them. Often they may have large amounts of electrical equipment in their operations that are either no longer being used or that have broken down and been pulled out of service.

For business owners in this outstanding stock position (having items sitting around taking up space to no advantage whatsoever) – we offer the opportunity to relieve them of the equipment. So rather than sending it to the landfill or junkyard, we can help you earn some money by recycling with us and High Fiving the environment at the same time.


 

Saving You Time and Money

Our breaker selection covers the entire range from the smallest residential MCCBs to large mains systems for commercial and industrial use. We carry all the popular brands, some that aren’t so popular and others that are nearly impossible to locate because of their rarity.
