2015 Waste Reduction Week

Call2Recycle’s National Waste Ace Contests motivate Canadians to recycle hoarded batteries.

As Canada’s national battery recycling stewardship organization, Call2Recycle Canada will be celebrating Waste Reduction Week (October 19-25) this year by calling on Canadians to stop hoarding dead batteries. Canadians who divert the most batteries from landfills will be rewarded, and winning participants will be recognized as ‘Waste Ace’s’ in regions across the country.  A Waste Ace is someone who is taking responsible disposal of their waste seriously.
