Drop off batteries behind CH 5, not at the shredding event

The Golden Age Foundation’s (GAF) Battery collection buckets are now the behind Clubhouse 5 in the alley. Consumer batteries, including hearing aid batteries, are accepted for recycling. There will not be any opportunity to recycle old batteries at the shredding service event on Tuesday, July 13, as in the past.

The GAF Board decided to have a separate collection from the shredding service to avoid the risk of mixing of documents and batteries. LWers are asked to drop off small batteries to behind Clubhouse 5 in the orange buckets, which are picked up by an outside contractor. No printer cartridges will be accepted for donation.

The GAF is an independent nonprofit, 501(c) (3) charitable organi-zation dedicated to serving the residents of Seal Beach Leisure World. Its purpose is to make the community a better place to live. The GAF was established in 1973 and is not affiliated with the Golden Rain Foundation.

All GAF programs are provided free to Leisure World shareholders. The GAF is entirely staffed by volunteers, so all contributions go directly to meeting community needs. The generous support of shareholders, residents, clubs organizations and businesses is the main source of income. GAF’s programs and projects are made possible by the volunteer efforts of so many.
