An upcoming recycling drive can harness the collective power of your community.
To mark Waste Reduction Week from Oct. 21 to 27, individuals can drop off batteries and cellphones at Call2Recycle collection boxes at Winnipeg Public Library branches across the city.
Libaries located in southeast Winnipeg include Louis Riel (1168 Dakota St.), St. Boniface (100-131 Provencher Blvd.), St. Vital (6 Fermor Ave.), and Windsor Park (955 Cottonwood Rd.).
Organizers note the batteries can weigh up to five kilograms, and the branch with the most collection in terms of weight will be crowned as Waste Ace and receive a special community prize.
