Call2Recycle Congratulates “Leaders in Sustainability”

Organizations were recently recognized with Call2Recycle’s Leader in Sustainability award for 2012. The Leader in Sustainability award honors organizations that demonstrate the strongest commitment to sustainability through their consistent participation in the Call2Recycle program.

Call2Recycle first established the Leader in Sustainability award last year to recognize high-performing organizations in Canada and has extended the award in 2012 to include U.S. participants. Each honoree receives a plaque recognizing their achievement.  Of the Canadian recipients this year, many are second-time honorees, demonstrating the continued strength of their battery recycling programs.

Through the efforts of our Leaders in Sustainability—and all of Call2Recycle’s partners—more than 10 million pounds (4.7 million kilograms) of batteries were diverted from landfills in 2012.  These organizations are setting a strong example of environmental consciousness and demonstrate that together we can have a tremendous impact on our surroundings.

Call2Recycle would like to congratulate all of the recipients on their achievement and thank them for their exemplary participation.
