Mr. Hacking is the founding president and CEO of the Electronic Products Recycling Association (EPRA), an industry-led, not-for-profit organization that operates regulated recycling programs across Canada.
Since launching in 2011, the EPRA has grown into the most comprehensive end-of-life electronic stewardship program in North America.
Under Cliff’s leadership, the EPRA now directs and supports more than 7,000 stewards across Canada and has collected and responsibly recycled over one million metric tonnes of regulated, end-of-life electronics to date. Such efforts, at more than 2,300 locations across the country, mean that 17 million devices are safely diverted from landfill and illegal export each year.
Mr. Hacking is recognized as an innovative, solutions-oriented leader with expertise in developing national systems and processes that drive lower costs and increased economies of scale within the scope of provincial regulations.
