Recycle Frog Introduces New Precious Metals Recycling Services Raises the Bar for the Industry

OTTAWA and NEW YORK – June 1, 2009 — Recycle Frog, a next generation, direct to consumer precious metals recycling company with operations in the United States and Canada, today announced that they have introduced new, convenient ways for consumers to recycle their unworn or broken gold, silver and platinum-containing jewellery. The introduction of Recycle Frog’s services is redefining the standard for simplicity, transparency and ethics – returning respect and integrity to a once well respected industry.

Exchanging gold for money is a transaction that has taken place for thousands of years. Sadly, today this transaction has been tarnished by complicated processes and unscrupulous companies high on flash and low on substance. Instead, Recycle Frog believes in providing consumers with the tools, means and information to make a secure, convenient and informed decision about recycling their unworn or broken jewellery.

“We understand that consumers want choices. Some want the speed and convenience of sending their material directly while others prefer to be present during the material evaluation,” said David Martinek, Vice President, Marketing, Recycle Frog. “It’s important for us to make this a simple and secure transaction that accommodates our customers’ preference, rather than try to convince them of it. They can send directly, attend or host a Recycle Frog Gold Party™, visit a Recycle Frog Certified Recycler in their city, or attend one of our corporate or community Recycle Frog Gold Drives™. The choice is all theirs.”

Recycle Frog precious metals recycling services include:

      Direct Mail
         Customers simply complete our “Get Started” form and print a pre-paid / pre-insured Canada Post shipping Recycle Kit.

         Consumers can host or attend a Recycle Frog Gold Party™, organize or participate in a company or charitable Recycle Frog Gold Drive™’, or visit a Certified Recycle Frog Agent.

      Recycle Frog Gold Drive™
         A Gold Drive is a simple concept modeled in part on the traditional bottle drive. Supporters are invited to participate in a gold recycling event in which a minimum of percentage of the recycled gold value is donated to support the cause.

      Recycle Frog Gold Party™
         Modeled after the traditional “Tupperware Party”, a Recycle Frog Gold Party is a new twist on an old theme. But unlike a “Tupperware Party”, guests actually get paid to participate and recycle their gold while enjoying an engaging and educational evening with family and friends.

By choosing any one of Recycle Frog’s services to recycle their broken or unworn jewellery, consumers are taking part in one of the highest impact recycling transactions available to them today. Recycling gold has profound financial and environmental effects that are both immediate and long term. With its innovative services and industry leading transparency, Recycle Frog is doing its part to give consumers an easy and effective means of recycling their unwanted gold while helping return a once respected industry back to its respected roots.
