To mark the start of Waste Reduction Week, the Winnipeg Public Library has teamed up with Call2Recycling.

By working with Canada’s national consumer battery stewardship program, libraries will compete to see who can collect the most household batteries for recycling between October 19-25.

“After the success of the “Winnipeg Waste Ace” contest in 2013, we are delighted to partner with Winnipeg Public Library once again to create more awareness around battery recycling and to keep batteries out of the Winnipeg landfills,” said Delphine Lagourgue, regional director of Call2Recycle.

“It is important for people to realize just how easy battery recycling can be with so many convenient locations where they can drop them off.”

The winning library and holder of the “Winnipeg Waste Ace” title will be announced in mid-November 2015. To find the library nearest you, visit the city’s website.
