Earth Day is today but you can celebrate on Wednesday, April 24, 2013 with Call2Recycle as they host a one-of-a-kind battery drive featuring a specially constructed, full-size battery scale — TipZone. They’ll be joined by BC Lion’s quarterback Travis Lulay and Leo the Lion at Science World from 10:00am to 11:00am for the launch Science World’s new battery recycling collection kiosk.
With over 1,200 battery collection sites in BC, Call2Recycle is excited to partner with Science World to launch this new collection site, which will be located in Science World’s main entrance area. Science World visitors can now bring used batteries and cellphones to the Call2Recycle kiosk and learn about proper battery recycling.
How many batteries will equal the weight of Travis Lulay of the BC Lions? We’ll find out! On Wednesday you can bring in your used batteries (weighing up to 5 kgs each) and cellphones to the event to help Call2Recycle “tip the scale” and lift Travis Lulay off the ground. Any person bringing 5 or more batteries and/or cell phones will receive 2-for-1 admission to Science World that day.
Those in attendance can meet Travis Lulay and Leo the Lion, take a photo and get autographs. You can also enter to win prizes by bringing used batteries and cellphones for recycling.
If you can’t make it to Science World, you can use the online locator to find a Call2Recycle station or kiosk nearby. Follow @Call2Recycle and @ScienceWorldCA on Twitter for more event information and updates about the battery recycling TipZone.
