Recognized for recycling

ABC Recycling was the recipient of an Employee Campaign Loyalty Award, presented at the Scotiabank & United Way Spirit Awards.

This is the second consecutive year that ABC Recycling has received the award in the “small organization” category.

The award recognized the generosity of employees at ABC Recycling’s operations in Burnaby, Surrey and Campbell River, who donated almost $26,000 that was matched dollar for dollar by ABC Recycling, for a total of close to $52,000.

Of the 120 employees at the three locations, 65 per cent participated in the campaign.

“We are very proud of all our employees who donate to their communities through the United Way,” said ABC Recycling CEO David Yochlowitz. “The United Way has become our charity of choice, with employees donating not only a portion of their pay, but also their time through the charity’s annual Day of Caring.”

With both employee and company contributions, ABC Recycling has raised more than $150,000 for the United Way in the past three years.

Founded in 1912, ABC Recycling is a fourth-generation, family-owned business with operations in Burnaby, Surrey, and Campbell River, with joint venture operations in Kelowna, Terrace and Prince George.
