Durham Five Million Trees Program
In 2015, Raw MaterialsCompany was endorsed by the Durham Region Council to be a corporate champion for the Durham Five Million Trees Program. The tree program is part of the Durham Community Climate Change Local Action Plan and calls for trees to be planted across the region on public and private land to combat climate change.
Working alongside the Region and Forests Ontario, Raw Materials Company makes a financial contribution to Forests Ontario for each kilogram of household batteries recycled at participating stores. It takes approximately three kilograms of batteries to plant and care for one tree.
The OSBRC is a provincial recycling competition between elementary and secondary schools. The aim of the Challenge is to teach students and their parents about the importance of battery recycling and to raise awareness about safe storage and the handling of batteries.
This charitable donation is made on behalf of all OSBRC participants at the end of the Challenge.
Habitat for Humanity
Committed to building affordable housing for low-income families, Habitat for Humanity affiliate stores coordinate events and fundraising initiatives at the community level. The funds they receive are used to select partner families for homeownership, provide them with support and to manage the building of Habitat homes.
Since 2012, Raw Materials Company has been building a partnership that now includes all 26 Habitat for Humanity affiliate stores across Ontario. The program aims to raise awareness about battery recycling and provides Habitat customers with a convenient place to recycle their batteries. In return, RMC provides a donation back for every kilogram recycled to support Habitat’s local homebuilding projects.

Did you know?
Zinc is one of the world's most commonly used metals. Approximately 30% of the zinc today comes from recycled sources. Raw Materials Company is able to recover zinc from the batteries that you recycle. The zinc we recover is then reused as micronutrients in fertilizer to grow corn for biofuel.
As a result of RMC's recycled materials, farmers are able to increase their yields by over 20 bushels per acre. This is important considering our growing population and the need to make efficient use of our existing farmland.
