“We all know instilling good habits is easiest when we’re young, so more and more parents and educators are working to make kids aware of the importance of caring for our planet. As kids get ready to return to school in the fall, here are some simple tips to encourage sustainable habits and support a healthy environment… and healthy kids!”

The CFCC Sustainability Committee has partnered with the NHC Public Library and NHC Environmental Management team to bring battery recycling to the CFCC campuses!
Bring all types of spent batteries to either the Wilmington or North Campus library for recycling, starting this week! New battery recycling containers are in place, courtesy of the Environmental Management department.
Batteries will be taken to NHC’s Household Hazardous Waste facility to be sorted and shipped to approved recyclers.
Batteries contain corrosive chemicals and heavy metals that can contaminate groundwater, so please don’t toss used batteries in trash that’s headed to the landfill!
To help protect local air and water quality, research your options for recycling and safely disposing of hazardous wastes at Environmental Management’s website or by calling 910-798-4400.
To promote and facilitate the development of sustainable practices and policies through the collaborative efforts of faculty, students and staff.
