Canadians Recycle One Million Kilograms of Batteries in Just Five Months

Provinces of British Columbia and Quebec Lead National Increase of 26 Per Cent Over 2013 Collections

TORONTO - Canadians are recycling rechargeable and single-use batteries at a record pace in 2014, achieving a new collections milestone of one million kilograms earlier than ever, reports Call2Recycle Canada. By comparison, the country took 9 months in 2012 and 7 months in 2013 to reach the same milestone.

The province of British Columbia leads battery recycling efforts with a 34 per cent increase in collections compared to the same time period in 2013. Quebec is also recycling more batteries -- 16 per cent more than the same time period last year.

Working with thousands of public collection sites, Call2Recycle has seen battery returns skyrocket, especially in provinces where the collection of batteries for recycling is mandatory: British Columbia (34 per cent), Manitoba (14 per cent), Ontario (17 per cent), and Quebec (16 per cent) all have had double digit annual increases. These four provinces alone have contributed to 75 per cent of the overall growth.
