Calling all Recyclers! We want your Natural Corks.
December 12, 2008: Jelinek Cork Group is delighted to announce a new recycled cork program. Jay Jelinek said “Due to the large number of inquiries we received from the public we realized there is a huge demand to continue recycling natural cork.”
To try and make the process as simple as possible all we ask is for community groups, schools or other not for profit organizations to bring their sorted collected corks to our facility on Speers Road in Oakville.
The corks need to be put in a brown paper garden refuse bag, which can be bought at all major grocery or hardware stores. We will pay $15 for each full bag of sorted natural corks.
Jay Jelinek continued with: “We are encouraged to hear so many people take seriously the desire to recycle one of nature’s most renewable products, by collecting and recycling we were able to divert over 8 tonnes of cork that was destined to end up in landfill.”
This program helps community groups raise both funds and awareness that natural cork is not only a completely sustainable product but totally recyclable and by using natural cork you're helping preserve one of the most biologically diverse habitats in the world.
