IWMC has received Call2Recycle’s 2019 Leader in Sustainability Award for its outstanding commitment to battery recycling. In 2019, over 27,661 kg (just under 61,000 lb) of batteries were returned for recycling in the Province. This is very impressive.
Call2Recycle, founded in 1997, is a not-for-profit organization working on behalf of manufacturers to provide battery and cellphone recycling programs. Since inception, 22 million kg of batteries have been recovered for recycling through Call2Recycle.
Thank you Islanders. We continue to be leaders in waste management because of your dedication and efforts.
