Atlantic auto recyclers connect at 2022 Convention
Story by ALLISON ROGERS
The Automotive Recyclers Association of Atlantic Canada (ARAAC) welcomed the fall season by hosting its 2022 convention—marking the organization’s first official gathering since pre-pandemic days. Despite Hurricane Fiona’s sweep of the Maritimes—which occurred just days before the convention—50 dedicated recycling industry stakeholders made it to the first ARAAC Convention at the Inn on Prince in Truro, N.S.
Guests witnessed a variety of presentations covering on-trend topics for auto recyclers, like boosting core and catalytic converter profitability; the impending opportunities in recycling electric vehicle batteries and insights on using your financials as strategic assets.
Next year’s event is already set and scheduled, said Steve Fletcher, managing director of the Auto Recyclers of Canada (ARC). He told Canadian Auto Recyclers that the 2023 convention will be the biggest ARAAC event ever, as the organization partners with the Auto Recyclers of Canada (ARC) and the Canadian Association of Recycling Industries (CARI) in Halifax from June 8 to June 12, 2023.
