The Barrhaven Lions will be putting funds they receive from their Electronics Recycling Day back into community projects.
On October 16th the Lions will have containers in the south end parking lot of the Barrhaven Town Centre, 3777 Strandherd Drive, and are encouraging residents to drop off, for free, their old electronic items to be recycled. Collection will be held on Saturday, October from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Unwanted electronics such as computer equipment including any brand of desktop, laptop, monitors, mice, keyboards, cables, drives and computer-related peripherals, printers and scanners, televisions, telephones, cellphones, chargers, and radios/stereos can be dropped off for recycling. The collected e-waste will then be recycled for use in raw materials for new products instead of going into landfill.
Electronic recycling helps the environment and the Lions’ management of natural resources can improve the quality of life and increase the engagement of their local communities. The Barrhaven Lions are planning on making the event a bi-annual fundraiser with a recycling collection taking place in the spring and a second in the fall.
The Barrhaven Lions are looking for volunteers to lead projects, gain valuable experience, network and have fun. Contact us by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 613-800-2596.
