Call2RecycleAward- Feb, 2024

Hey Cowichan,

The CVRD has been selected as a recipient of Call2Recycle’s Leader in Sustainability Award for 2023, in recognition of outstanding collection results for household battery recycling.  In 2023, the CVRD collected 8,400 kg of household batteries, contributing to a record-breaking year at Call2Recycle.

Thanks in part to your efforts, Call2Recycle increased collections by 32% in 2023, diverting almost 6 million kilograms of batteries from landfill!   Since inception in 1997, the Call2Recycle program has now collected and recycled more than 45 million kilograms of batteries from across Canada.  Keep up the good work!
