Greentech Lead Team: Call2Recycle, a provider of consumer
battery recycling in North America, has inked a new agreement with Toxco-Canada
to process Lithium and Lithium Ion batteries for recycling.
“We are excited to deepen our relationship with
Toxco-Canada as part of our commitment to a greener environment and sound
practices with regards to battery recycling,” said Call2Recycle‘s
Canadian Executive Director Joe Zenobio.
Toxco’s facility in Trail, British Columbia is the only
facility in the world that offers both primary and secondary (rechargeable)
Lithium battery recycling. Call2Recycle’s processing agreement ensures that
Toxco-Canada will utilize its unique hydrometallurgical technology to produce
lithium and cobalt raw materials.
The new contract builds on the partnership that
Toxco-Canada already has with Call2Recycle as a service provider of sorting
batteries and cellular phones.
“We are pleased to work with the Call2Recycle
program and are committed to environmental excellence in the recycling of batteries
in North America,” said Kathy Bruce, vice president of Toxco-Canada.
In the past year, Call2Recycle has collected more than
800,000 kilograms of batteries in Canada. The ongoing and highly productive
partnership between Call2Recycle and Toxco-Canada positions both companies for
continued service growth and environmental success.
