Take Charge and Recycle Your Batteries

MISSISSAUGA, June 18, 2015

The City of Mississauga’s battery recycling program now offers residents a battery drop off location at all Mississauga Libraries and Community Centres.

“Our program provides residents with convenient and environmentally responsible options to help them manage and reduce their waste,” said Brenda Osborne Director of Environment. “It’s about keeping hazardous waste such as used or unwanted batteries out of our landfills.”

Since its expansion in October of 2014, the program has collected over one tonne of batteries – that’s equivalent to a small compact car. By the end of 2015, the program is expected to collect over two metric tonnes of batteries.

Residents can recycle single use (non-rechargeable) batteries (A, AA, AAA, AAAA, C cell, D cell, 4.5-volt, 9-volt.) at any of the bins located by the customer service areas in each Library and Community Centre. To ensure safety, residents are asked to cover the battery terminals with electrical tape before dropping the batteries into bins.

Spring Speaker Series

Spring Speaker Series

The third in this series is being held this Thursday at the Lorne Park Library at 7 pm.

We are all lucky to live in Mississauga, the 6th largest city in Canada and we all could learn more about the significant moments and times that have helped to shape our City.

Our speaker is a well known historian for Heritage Mississauga and not only knows his subject but knows how to create a great story while being entertaining and factual. He is an engaging speaker and not to be missed.

 

We look forward to you joining us from 7 to 8.30 and there will be time for questions at the end of the program

 

Donations of food or money for COMPASS would be appreciated.

Spring Speaker Series – The second in this series Thursday May 14

at the Lorne Park Library at 7 pm.

We are featuring a subject near and dear to a lot of us,

Estate Planning and Downsizing. We have two great speakers for you

 

Richard Barrett, BA, LLB, the “friendly lawyer” practices in “nice” law:

real estate law (buying, selling, refinancing properties),

corporate/commercial law for businesses, asset-protection strategies,

and estate planning (Powers of Attorney, Trusts and Wills).

He counsels his clients how to properly and legally protect

the people and things that matter to them.  

 

Julie Morris has a great deal of experience helping people

in their needs to “Right Size” especially Boomers and Seniors.

We are not the experts in this area so it does help hearing from someone

with a wide knowledge of the subject told in a down to earth manner

that we can all understand and most likely relate to.

We look forward to seeing you 7 to 8.30 with plenty of time

for questions at the end of the program

 

Donations of food or money for COMPASS would be appreciated.

 

Hope to see you there
