THE GREAT CANADIAN BATTERY DRIVE
At Canadian Energy, we're not just about distributing fantastic products. We also have a passion for helping out our communities and the environment where we live and work.
As a school, organization, remote community, or team there is a great new way we can work together to help the environment and raise money for your next fundraiser. For every battery you recycle with Canadian Energy, you would need to collect over 96 beer bottles or 40 wine bottles to match! We can't even imagine how many bake sales or car washes you'd need to compete with that. The latest automotive industry research shows that 12% of consumers still have a dead or unusable vehicle battery at home and not in the closed recycling loop in an effort to bring those remaining vehicle batteries that sit in forgotten corners of garages or in inoperative vehicles back into the recycling loop, we have launched this program.We've created a process to make recycling batteries simple, safe, and profitable. And at the same time, ensuring our forests, rivers and oceans become cleaner and greener.
In conjunction with the Canadian Battery Association and the Responsible Battery Coalition, we have a goal to collect 2,000,000 batteries. We simply can’t do it without you. Your support will make a real, lasting impact in the lives of our children and on our environment. Please read these important pieces of information:
- Canadian Energy, and affiliated locations, will accept all types of batteries for recycling, but will only pay participants market price on eligible battery types (lead-acid technology).
- Large Lithium battery sizes are showing up at our branches more frequently now. These are typically Powersport and larger footprints. These types of batteries need to be sent back to an approved facility to be recycled and the cost is about $12-$15/lb.
- We may, at any time, and at our sole discretion, modify these Terms and Conditions of Use, including the types of batteries we accept for return for the purpose of recycling or exchange for monetary exchange with or without notice to the User. Any such modification will be effective immediately upon public posting. Your continued use of our Service and this Site following any such modification constitutes your acceptance of these modified Terms.
