Recycle Frog Opens New Office in Halifax, Nova Scotia
HALIFAX – June 10, 2011 – Recycle Frog, one of Canada’s fastest growing and most trusted precious metals recycling companies, is pleased to announce that it has expanded its operations and opened a new office just a short drive from Halifax, in Bedford, Nova Scotia. Recycle Frog’s innovative gold buying service, currently available in Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec, is now open for business for customers in Halifax and the surrounding area.
“We’re extremely proud to bring our well-respected service to the people of Halifax and the province of Nova Scotia. Now, selling old, broken or unwanted gold and silver jewellery, coins and other items doesn’t have to be a scary proposition. Instead, the overall customer experience will be fast, safe and more financially rewarding,” said Matthew MacQuarrie, President, Recycle Frog. “We’ve already hosted several fundraising and public events in the Maritimes, including those in Dartmouth, Halifax and Moncton. Now our customers can come meet us in person at our new Bedford offices, Monday to Friday, during normal business hours.”
An overwhelming demand, driven in part by skyrocketing gold and silver prices, is getting people to consider selling their unwanted and unfashionable items. Recycle Frog estimates that about 80 per cent of its transactions are with people getting rid of unwanted or broken jewellery while other items regularly purchased include silver coins, sterling silver flatware or serving pieces, dental gold and investment bars.
“While Recycle Frog has been in operation for over three years, we’re just starting to build momentum in the Maritimes. We’re ready to work hard to earn our customer’s trust, and will look at developing strong partnerships within the community, like the ones we have with Christmas Daddies and United Way,” said Macquarrie. ”
A strong supporter of “urban mining,” Recycle Frog refines and recycles all material that it purchases. Only about 25 per cent of the world’s current demand for gold is met with recycled materials with the remainder coming from new mining, which takes an irrevocable toll on the earth. Recycling old gold or silver with Recycle Frog results in a payout for both the customer and a net benefit for the planet.
Interested customers are invited and encouraged to meet with Recycle Frog in person at any one of its many upcoming public events and to visit them at their Bedford offices located at 647 Bedford Hwy, only a short drive from downtown Halifax. Everyone will receive a fast, no-cost, haggle-free material evaluation by a trained evaluation agent to determine the value of the items and make a purchase offer. When customers accept the offer, a cheque is issued on the spot.
