Company Responsibility

Packaging – Cardboard Recycling

Our environmental concerns to becoming greener are also reflected in the way we package your order. If it shows up in a used box, please don't be offended. When possible, we recycle sturdy boxes and foam blocks to reduce waste.

Packaging Process

Cross Canada has implemented a rigorous packing process, starting with the part being picked from stock and examined by a trained employee. We have mandated that all employees must then sign the part noting that it has been checked. The part is then packaged in a secure method to minimize damages with either foam, bubble wrap or recycled cardboard which helps to minimize waste and be more environmentally friendly.

Bumper Recycling Process

Today, cars are one of the most recycled consumer items. Approximately 82 percent of an average vehicle’s weight gets recycled. Automakers often manufacture recycled materials into new vehicles; in some cases, recycled materials are used in the production process. The amount of material per car, however, makes it critical to improve the recyclable amount, since 18 percent of a car is still a lot of leftover material ending up in landfills. Cross Canada has been doing their part with the recycling of used bumpers by developing relationships with body shops across Canada to gather unused and slightly damaged bumpers, storing these, rebuilding and then having them reused by selling them back to the consumer fully refurbished. This process is both beneficial to the environment as well as to the consumer as there are tremendous cost savings involved with the using of recycled bumpers compared with replacing them with new bumpers.

Our bumper recycling program, provides thousands of repaired bumpers annually and are of the highest quality in the industry. The level of preparation and finishing that each part is subjected to during the renewal process is one that makes Cross Canada a cut above the rest. Today's new repair techniques and materials provide a high quality finished product. The final step in the process is to receive a complete priming of the bumper so it is ready for scuffing and painting by the shop technician.
