Fun Fun Park Recycling Fair

Comments 1 by Rebecca Bollwitt

A park so nice they named it twice! Fun Fun Park in Surrey is hosting a recycling fair this Saturday to help raise funds for a new playground. In partnership with ElectroRecycle, you can drop off your electrical products for recycling (toasters, microwaves, coffee-makers, power tools, etc.) throughout the day to support this community green space.


What: Fun Fun Park Recycling Fair
Where: Fun Fun Park (1472 128 Street in Surrey)
When: Saturday, September 21, 2013 from 1:00pm to 5:00pm

The event on Saturday will include activities for kids, food, a raffle, and more. You will also be able to learn about ElectroRecycle and its drop-off locations throughout BC.

ElectroRecycle accepts more than 300 electrical products ranging in size from electric toothbrushes, countertop microwave ovens, hand-held drills to treadmills. Products are divided into categories including: kitchen countertop (motorized and heating), time measurement, weight measurement, garment care, air treatment, desk and tabletop fans, designated very small items, floor care, personal care, test and measurement tools, hand-held power tools; bench-top, demolition, and free-standing power tools, sewing/textile machines, exercise machines, sports, leisure, arts, crafts, and hobby devices, as well as additional designated very small items.

The program recycles small appliances designed for residential use only and powered by batteries or plugged in to 12 Volt or 120 Volt power.

The goal is to raise $5,000 for the new playground at the park, which is in need of enhancements to better serve kids of all ages. For every kilogram of electrical products recycled, $1 will be donated to Fun Fun Park, up to 5,000kgs.
