Victoria Cross Public School Battery Recycling
March 20, 2019 @ 8:00 am - June 28, 2019 @ 4:00 pm
Victoria Cross Public School students are collecting used batteries (AA,AAA,C,D,6V, 9V, and button cell.)
On average, Canadians use 20 batteries per year and too many batteries are thrown away and make their way to landfills. So far, students at Victoria Cross have collected 368 kg of batteries and would appreciate community support to reach a goal of collecting 571 kg by April 19, 2019. If we reach this goal the school will receive a portion of money that students can donate to charity. Please help us by bringing batteries to the main foyer of Victoria Cross Public School, located at 355 Durham St.W, Mount Forest, any weekday. We will gratefully collect them all year!
