This is the second year in a row Wellington County has received this award. Warden Andy Lennox said, “This award recognizes the residents of Wellington County and their commitment to protect our environment and keep hazardous materials out of our landfill.” Since 1997, Call2Recycle has diverted almost 40 million kilograms of batteries from Canadian landfills and meets or exceeds the most rigorous recycling standards for safe battery recycling and management.
