British Columbians and Ontarians Can Now Recycle All Household Batteries
StopSignAdBeginning today, all residents of Canada’s British Columbia and Ontario provinces can recycle all household batteries, including alkalines, through the Call2Recycle program. Residents can look up drop-off locations by using our site locator. Businesses, municipalities and government agencies can sign up to collect batteries that are generated within their organizations.
This service is absolutely free. So, British Columbians and Ontarians, clean out your junk drawers, attics or tool sheds and give those dead batteries the boot!

Sustainable Campuses Attract Eco-Conscious Students
AASHEAdapting sustainable practices can help colleges and universities save millions in operational costs, but there is another good reason for colleges and universities to push for carbon footprint reduction and green initiatives. The Princeton Review’s Guide to 286 Green Colleges shows that over 65 percent of 10,300 high school students would take the institutes’ sustainability efforts into consideration during their college selection process.
Students believe they can make a difference on green campuses; colleges and universities see it as a business opportunity. Overall, sustainable campuses present countless opportunities to both protect the planet and educate future generations about the environment.
