The owners, Randy and Nancy, discussed electronics recycling for

market appeared ready so we beat our heads against a wall trying to
come up with a name and then incorporated and rented space at 14 Bexley
Place. The doors first opened on the Recycling Centre in January 2006.
On July 1, 2011, we moved the Bells Corners location to a larger
facility at 6 Bexley Place. We also opened an AS IS Store to

items before final destruction and recycling.

of the Name
The name of the company came from a documentary called Ancient
Prophecies, specifically an episode dealing with the Ancient Maya and
the prediction that the world will end on December 21, 2012. In the
episode electronic equipment rose up against its makers. At
Twenty-Twelve we recycle equipment so it won't be able to rise up. Of
course, we also have a strange sense of humour.
Technology Corporation / The Trailing Edge
We provide parts to The Trailing Edge and resell some of our higher
quality items through them.
