A group of Canadian cannabis companies are working together to launch a national vape recycling program that will help consumers dispose vape hardware safely and responsibly.

48North, Aurora Cannabis, Aphria Inc. Canopy Growth, and Cronos Group, along with the Cannabis Council of Canada (C3) are looking to launch the program across more than 200 retail locations in British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario. The program will supply stores with countertop collection boxes which will then be picked up by Quantum Lifecycle Partners, a Canadian electronic recycling provider.

“It feels good to be collaborating with industry on solutions that help consumers recycle their vapes,” said Steven Fish, senior manager of corporate social responsibility for Aurora Cannabis – and a catalyst for the program. “We will learn how much material can be recovered during this pilot project and where we can take this partnership next.”
