Recycle Frog’s Gold Buying Services in High Demand; Company Grows East, Hosts Events in Moncton, New Brunswick

OTTAWA and MONCTON – August 10, 2010 – Recycle Frog, Canada’s fastest growing and most trusted direct-to-consumer precious metals recycling company, today announced that due to the incredible demand for its gold and silver buying services, it will be opening the first of several offices in the Maritimes. Kicking off its east coast expansion, Recycle Frog will be hosting its first public event the weekend of Friday, August 13th, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel located on Main Street in downtown Moncton.

Like so many other innovative companies, Recycle Frog was borne out of a need to fill a significant gap in the marketplace. With numerous companies buying gold and new ones emerging weekly, consumers now have dozens of companies to choose from, yet each company is essentially a carbon copy of the last. Every commercial features actors waiving wads of cash and remarking on their amazing experience. It seems these companies are all rooted in ‘pawn shop-style’ business practices – high on flash but low on substance. Until now.

“We are extremely excited to bring an ‘intelligent alternative’ to the people of New Brunswick,” said Matthew MacQuarrie, President, Recycle Frog. “We proved that when you provide a professional service that properly rewards people financially for simply recycling their unwanted gold, your business will grow. The thousands of satisfied Recycle Frog customers speak volumes. Now we’re bringing that same tried, tested and trusted service to New Brunswick.”

Upcoming Event:
Friday, August 13th from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Saturday, August 14th from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Sunday, August 15th from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Where: The Crowne Plaza Hotel | 1005 Main Street | Downtown Moncton

Recycle Frog appeals to a significant segment of the population previously alienated, ignored or worse, taken advantage of. These prudent consumers never seriously considered doing business with pawn shops, or mailing their gold to those infomercials on TV, regardless of the price of gold. These same consumers now have a much more intelligent option, conveniently serving the people of Moncton, Fredericton and other communities around the province.

“The unprecedented demand for Recycle Frog’s in-person material evaluation service has driven the need to deliver it to new, underserved markets like those found across New Brunswick,” added MacQuarrie. “This first event in Moncton will help establish Recycle Frog’s foothold in the region, eventually leading to more offices across the east coast. Good news for consumers looking to sell their gold jewellery and for those actively seeking an employment opportunity with Canada’s fastest growing gold buyer.”

Recycle Frog will also bring its innovative Gold Drive™ fundraising program to the region. The program is already helping a growing number of local and nationally recognized organizations, including the Canadian Cancer Society, the United Way and Children’s Hospital Foundation.
