Re-usuable Tote Program (Canada)

IMCD offers a returnable tote program to our customers as an alternative to disposable, single use packaging. Our re-usable assets (ARCA, HAWMAN and WARMPRO Heaters) provides a packaging solution that are not only more cost effective, but also contribute to a sustainable footprint through reduced waste. Assets available through the program adhere to Safe Food for Canada Regulations.

IMCD Assets are made available to customers within, but not limited to IMCD’s eligible local delivery areas as defined below;


Warehouse Address Delivery Range

IMCD will assist arranging pickup and return of the assets once emptied. Instructional videos are provided for any actions that need to be undertaken to ensure a smooth return.


Assets should be stored in a clean, food safe environment at all times. The tote should not be used to store any material other than what was shipped from IMCD.

Asset Return & Late Fees

IMCD prices our returnable asset program based on the return of a tote within a reasonable time period, currently defined as 60 days from date of delivery. Any additional time with an asset would require pre-approval from IMCD. If an asset is not returned with the allotted time, IMCD reserves the right to charge a fee of $250 for every additional 30 days the tote is not returned. These fees will be billed on a separate invoice, and will continue until the cost of IMCD’s asset is fully recovered. A customer may be eligible for a credit or reimbursement if a ‘late’ asset is returned promptly.  


IMCD tracks assets using a BarCode Identification number unique to each unit. These codes are scanned at all stages of operation – Empty, Filled, Storage, Shipped and Returned. Once an asset is returned to IMCD, it will be inspected for damage. If damage is found, IMCD reserves the right to charge a replacement cost for the asset. Damage may include; any defacing of the asset by graffiti or a 3rd party, punctures, missing or defective components or irreparable damage. Costs of the assets are defined below;

Replacement Cost
  • Arca Tote - $1150
  • Hawman Tote - $1800
  • Warm Pro Heater - $800
