Take Action This Waste Reduction Week and Run a Battery Recycling Campaign in Your School!
Call2Recycle partnered with EcoKids to invite schools to participate in the Battery Busters: Waste Reduction Week Contest! Get your whole school community involved to collect as many used batteries as possible for your chance to win prizes that will help support future environmental initiatives at your school.
Four prizes will be awarded. $1,500 for the school that collects the most used batteries; $1,500 for the school that collects the most used batteries in relation to their school population; $1,500 for the school with the most creative and original battery collection display; and $1,000 will be awarded to one school selected by random draw.
How to participate, a quick step-by-step guide!
Go to EcoKids’ website and read the contest rules and regulations to learn about the contest details and make sure your school qualifies to participate.
