Good afternoon families,


As you know, we are having our used battery drive at Lakewood Elementary.  The batteries will be picked up this Thursday at noon.  Please bring them into the school for the next three days so our students can win a pizza lunch for our whole school!  Recycle boxes are located on top of our recycle stations in the school.  Additionally, if you have a large container of used batteries, they can be placed across from the office below our mural.


Thanks for your support with this worthwhile campaign!

Call2Recycle collects and recycles almost 3 million kg of batteries each year. That’s equivalent to the weight of 1,000 African elephants! You can do your part to make sure more batteries are recycled by participating in the Battery Blitz School Mission!

Your Mission is to recycle as many used batteries as you can by bringing them into your school and disposing of them in the Call2Recycle collection boxes.

The school that recycles the most batteries will win* a Pizza Party!

Here’s How it Works:

  • The Battery Blitz Mission will kick off in participating schools during the live Earth Rangers Assembly.
  • Battery collection boxes will be set up and students will be asked to bring in their used batteries over a 3 week period.
  • In addition to common, single use batteries, any battery less than 5kg can be brought in to be recycled, including those found in:
    • Power tools
    • Video game consoles
    • Digital and video cameras
    • Cellphones and cordless phones
    • Watches (with the exception of wet-cell batteries)
  • For safety reasons, we ask that you please cover battery terminals with tape (electrical/duct/packing) before bringing the batteries to school, as some types of batteries can spark when their terminals touch metal or other batteries. Please refer to Call2Recycle’s Terminal Protection Guidelines for more info!
  • After your 3 week period of battery collection is completed, your school must call Purolator at 1-888-744-7123 to have your battery collection boxes picked up.
  • All batteries will be collected and weighed, and the school that collects the most by weight will win* a Pizza Party! The winning schools will be posted here in December 2018.

Call2Recycle collects and recycles almost 3 million kgs of batteries each year. To find the nearest Call2Recycle collection site, please visit www.call2recycle.ca.
