Our Community Engagement Initiatives

Proudly Supporting Our Community

In partnership with numerous customers who graciously donate a portion of their scrap proceeds, General Recycling Industries Ltd. is a proud and continued supporter of the Kids with Cancer Society. Annually, General Recycling Industries Ltd. matches customer donations dollar for dollar and is the title sponsor of The Tour of Hope. Since 2012, this collective effort has resulted in combined contributions of over  a million dollars.

Le Tour of Hope Cycling Adventure

This event started in 2002 when a local girl faced childhood cancer. Her father and his friends were determined to unite the community and provide further support to the Kids with Cancer Society and launched the first Le Tour of Hope cycling event.

Le Tour of Hope is an exhilarating and challenging 8-day cycling adventure that spans up to 1,000 km to raise awareness and support for kids with cancer as well as their families. Each cyclist is required to collect a minimum of $3,500 in pledges. Register today to participate in the next Le Tour of Hope!
