HNP Ontario launched our very first event of 2023; a virtual Battery Drive Challenge!
Participants learned about battery disposal and simple sustainable practices they can use in their daily life. They also learned more about their City’s waste management system and how recycling batteries can benefit their local environment.
Over the course of 2 weeks, participants gathered batteries around their house (or anywhere) and recycled them appropriately. They weighed their batteries and took pictures of their measurements. Then they disposed of them by sealing/containing them properly and following their City specific waste management guidelines.
Participants uploaded proof of their measurements and disposal and won prizes and earned up to 6 volunteer hours!
