Make a Greener Move

Atlas Van Lines moving companies local movers and long distances movers are not the only ones who are happy to recycle their moving boxes.

We are proud to say that Atlas Van Lines was honoured with the John Biasini Environment Excellence Award for lowering energy consumption through conservation and technology.

Atlas Canada and our network of mover agents across Canada are dedicated to making the world a greener place through a variety of energy saving initiatives:

  • Our moving trucks use ultra low sulphur diesel fuel,  the most energy efficient fossil fuel
  • The cartons and paper used for packing are made from recycled materials and are 100% recyclable
  • Our agents across Canada also offer gently used cartons to moving customers at a reduced price
  • Atlas Van Lines Canada provides "print on demand" moving brochures for our agents to reduce energy and to save outdated brochures from ending up in a landfill
  • Our brochures are 100% recyclable
  • Atlas Canada's Headquarters uses timed, low wattage lighting throughout the building and we recycle paper, toners, print cartridges, bottles, cans and cardboard
  • Atlas' 148 national mover agents across Canada recycle corrugated cardboard, stretch wrap, plastic, glass, steel, aluminum, wood, engine oils, tires and batteries
