Partners in Project Green’s Recycling Collection Drive is an employee engagement campaign that supports organizations to collect clothing, household textiles, and electronics to divert waste from landfill and engage employees about sustainability.
Recycling Collection Drive 2023
The 2023 campaign was held between October 9-22, 2023 during Waste Reduction Week and Circular Economy Month in Canada! Partners in Project Green organized a Recycling Collection Drive to re-use and recycle clothing and textile waste with Diabetes Canada and electronic waste with Electronic Recycling Association. Organizations that registered for the Recycling Collection Drive helped divert waste from landfills and engaged their employees around sustainability.
Congratulations to this year’s participants who collected a total of 15,983 lbs (7,256 kg) of clothing and household textiles and 13,579.5 lbs (6,165 kg) of electronic waste!
