A huge thank-you to our Prize Sponsors:

Call2Recycle is North America’s first and largest battery stewardship program. As a non-profit organization, they collect and recycle batteries at no cost for municipalities, businesses and consumers. Call2Recycle has diverted more than 39 million kilograms of batteries and cellphones from the solid waste stream and established over 34,000 collection sites throughout Canada and the US. It is the first program of its kind to receive the Responsible Recycling Practices Standard (R2) certification.    

 

Love our planet? So do we. At ProductCare Recycling, we believe reducing waste is the key to our future. That's why we recycle environmentally harmful products like lightbulbs, smoke alarms, and paint at free drop-off locations across the country. Together, we can reduce our waste and protect our planet. Join us in creating a healthy and vibrant planet for future generations!
