Auxly CEO Hugo Alves said: “We are so proud to partner with Greentec – a leader in environmentally responsible e-waste recycling – to offer this important vape recycling solution to the entire industry.
“Building on our introduction of 100% biodegradable vape and pre-roll-packaging, this Kolab Project vape hardware recycling initiative furthers our efforts to improve environmental stewardship within the cannabis industry, and we look forward to working with Canada’s retail community and consumers to roll-out this program nationally.”
The firm said that the Spiritleaf and Superette stores will have the Kolab Project-branded E-waste recycling bins available later this summer with many other retailers joining the programme in the coming months.
The recycling bins will accept vapes, cartridges and batteries from all licensed producers.
