Recycle old batteries on Nov. 21
GOLDEN AGE FOUNDATION
The Golden Age Foundation’s (GAF) battery recycling event will return on Tuesday, Nov. 21, from 10 a.m.-noon in the Clubhouse 2 parking lot. GRF ID is required. The GAF will collect the following approved batteries for recycle.
• Carbon Zinc
• Nickel Cadmium (NiCd)
• Nickel Metal-Hydride (NiMH)
• Lithium Ion (Li-Ion)
• Lithium Metal
• Silver Oxide
• Button cell batteries and all other dry cell batteries Basically this includes all household batteries, cell phone and laptop batteries, and small, button-type batteries. The GAF asks residents to place each lithium battery in a separate baggie as part of the recycle requirements.
It is important—to keep waste fees low and keep the planet clean—to recycle batteries instead of throwing them in the dumpster. This service is for Leisure World shareholders’ personal household batteries only; no business batteries.
The Golden Age Foundation is happy and honored to be able to serve the community in this area. For more information, call Carl Kennedy at 661-810-9410.
GAF volunteers wait eagerly for residents' used batteries at a past recycling event.
