Beyond Drop-Off: Our Recycling Values

For 20 years now, Ellice Recycle has been a growing recycling operation in Victoria, B.C. We’ve developed from a small facility to a local leader in management and recycling of all kinds of materials. Each year, we recycle more than 24,000 tonnes of waste material – all the while looking for new, innovative ways to improve our community and world through growing recycling rates and possibilities.

But more than just developing a community focused on recycling and minimizing waste, we have some very important recycling values at heart. Ellice Recycle LTD keeps these five recycling values at the forefront of what we do every day from our David Street facility and commercial yard in Victoria, B.C.:

  1. Be a leader in health and safety for staff and customers, alike. Our drop-off facilities at David Street and our commercial yard on Bridge Street are industrial spaces, but that doesn’t mean danger. The safety and health of our staff and customers is enormously important to us. This is why we cannot accept some hazardous materials, because they could put people – especially our employees – at risk.
  1. Weigh inLead the community in environmental responsibility. In order to bring about change in the world, we need to take responsibility for our carbon footprint and the choices we make every day. By making a conscious effort to achieve zero-waste in our homes and neighborhoods, we can save our environment.
  1. Innovate new ideas, strategies, and systems for recycling and sustainability. New technologies, ideas, and techniques are developed every day to benefit the world – why not develop recycling as well? That’s what we strive to do at Ellice Recycle: Think of new methods of recycling, expand our services, and discover ways to recycle things we previously discarded in landfills to make our environment more sustainable and clean.
  1. Provide excellent customer service, first. Many companies say that they want to give their customers a great experience, but not all of them follow through. Ellice Recycle staff and management put a lot of effort into ensuring that your experience with us is pleasant and successful, and that you are encouraged to join with the community for our greater goals in recycling.
  1. Support Victoria in developing and implementing a sustainable community. A lot of our efforts go beyond just the David Street yard – Ellice Recycle regularly participates with the city of Victoria in clean environment activities, events, and education. We are constantly working with the community to develop and implement sustainability. We will be publishing a blog post next month to explain more about the idea of a sustainable community – stay tuned.
