Environmental impact

Today’s vehicles have more plastic materials than ever before. In general, end-of-life parts are replaced rather than repaired, which generates a very large amount of waste in the environment. Millions of bumpers end up in our landfills each year.

These pieces take hundreds of years to break down, they are bulky and difficult to handle.

At Tandem, we have the ideal idea that all plastic bumpers in Canada be recycled, thanks to our exclusive sustainable green programs.

Our zero waste plastic recycling approach allows us to treat automotive plastics, such as bumpers, to eliminate their contamination, while producing a very high quality plastic material through our no-gas process.


Eco-friendly
company Certificate

We highlight your eco-friendly efforts as soon as your Tandem account is created, as you will prevent your recoverable plastics from ending up in landfills.

Together, let’s be
a tandem that protects the environment.
