Introductory Message from Call2Recycle Canada’s Executive Director Joe Zenobio


Starting the Year on Several High Notes

Happy New Year to all of you! Thanks to your support, Call2Recycle is proud to have achieved its target collections for the 19th consecutive year. We have helped divert almost 4.5 million kilograms of batteries across North America – an accomplishment that we attribute to the commitment of our partners in the public and private sector, our consumers, and Call2Recycle’s dedicated staff team.

This edition of the Battery Recycling Review recaps a number of success stories from the last quarter of 2015. They reflect the integral role of our valued partners in driving consumer awareness of the importance of battery recycling.

We are pleased to present the results of our Waste Reduction Week activities. Call2Recycle partnered with municipalities and organizations to discover Waste Ace champions across the country – from BC, Manitoba, Quebec and PEI –  who contributed to collecting tens of thousands of batteries.

Winnipeg Public Libraries inspired communities to deposit more than 2,300 batteries in just one week by putting up informative and creative battery recycling displays. And a little school in Charlottetown took its own unique measures to keep 7,000 batteries out of landfills.

Many retailers, including as RONA and Staples, also joined with Call2Recyle to drive battery recycling during peak seasons, such as the back-to-school rush, at the end of daylight savings time, and during the holidays.

And finally, we are starting off the New Year with a battery blitz among 50 schools in Ontario, organized by our partner Earth Rangers.

We would like to thank you for your unwavering support throughout 2015, and we look forward to working closely with you in 2016 to recharge the planet!
