More Batteries!!!

In the past three months, CFCC has recycled 96 pounds of batteries!!! That’s as much as…

A Toilet…


…four tires and a spare…

Tire Stack

…or a baby horse!

Baby Horse

Since we started the CFCC Battery Recycling Program in Fall 2014, we have recycled 262 pounds (averaging almost 15 pounds per month…and growing).  Keep up the good work!

Update on Battery Recycling

So far in 2015, we have collected 131 pounds of batteries for recycling!

That’s as much as a baby giraffe…

Keep up the great work, CFCC!  Have batteries just lying around, drop them off in the marked containers in both CFCC libraries or scattered around campus.
