Gopher Resource Receives Sustainability Award

Nonprofit Call2Recycle Presents Gopher Resource with "Leader in Sustainability" Award

To recognize the considerable contribution Gopher Resource has made as an environmental steward, Call2Recycle recently awarded the company a "Leader in Sustainability" award. Tim Warren, Call2Recycle's central regional account manager, presented the award to Daniel Leach, chief business development officer for Gopher Resource. 


Gopher Resource was given the award based on its continued commitment to the reclamation and environmentally responsible recycling of automotive batteries.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by our industry partners for the good work we’re doing,” Leach said. “The foundation of our company is its commitment to using safe, sustainable practices and advanced technologies.” Annually, Gopher Resource keeps approximately 20 million spent lead-based automotive, industrial and stationary batteries from entering landfills.

Founded in 1994, Call2Recycle is North America’s first and largest battery stewardship program. The nonprofit provides a no-cost used rechargeable battery and cellphone collection program with more than 34,000 collection sites throughout North America. Call2Recycle is funded by battery and product manufacturers committed to responsible recycling.
