Call2Recycle Canada and GFL Environmental Services Inc. announce a new agreement to expand waste battery sorting capacity in Western Canada. This agreement will move GFL’s competency and waste management center in Delta, BC to support Call2Recycle’s existing extensive battery collection and recycling network, strengthen British Columbia’s circular economy sector and reduce the carbon footprint of the recycling supply chain in Western Canada to reduce.
British Columbians have positioned their province as Canada’s leader in recycling, working with Call2Recycle and its vast network of trusted partners to safely collect, transport and recycle nearly 8 million kg of used batteries in British Columbia since 2010. This new partnership will increase the battery sorting capacity and significantly improve the battery recycling ecosystem and provide new opportunities to increase battery collection volume across the Western Canada region.
“We are pleased to expand our relationship with GFL Environmental Services and leverage their significant expertise and footprint in British Columbia. We share a common vision to provide efficient and sustainable battery disposal solutions to all Canadians,” said Joe Zenobio, President of Call2Recycle Canada. “Access to Delta’s Waste Management Center means we can better fulfill our mission to safely collect and recycle as many batteries as possible, thereby supporting BC’s local economy and environmental commitment.”
This agreement comes as part of Call2Recycle’s commitment to expand its battery collection and recycling network across Canada through its continued open-supplier strategy, in order to pursue its role as Canada’s leading battery recycling organization supporting consumers, communities and governments across Canada for the past 25 years.
