At Canadian Energy, we're not just about distributing fantastic products. We also have a passion for helping out our communities and 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 AUTOMOTIVE 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 our environment.

So, ready to get charged up, take action, and join the Great Canadian Battery Drive?!

*disclaimer: Canadian Energy, and affliate locations, will accept all types of batteries for recycling purposes but will only pay participants of the Great Canadian Battery Drive market price on lead-acid automotive battery's. We do not pay out on household rechargeable or alkaline battery's or any of these types of battery's excluding lead-acid transportation batteries.
