United Way of Thunder Bay - News & Events - News - Pope John Paul Battery Drive

Pope John Paul Battery Drive

Pope John Paul Senior Elementary School and Thunder Bay Auto Parts are joining forces to make our environment one step cleaner! On Saturday October 25th, students from Pope John Paul II School will be hosting a battery drive at Thunder Bay Auto Parts from 9am to 12pm.

The battery collection includes regular household batteries, as well as, car, truck, motorcycle, marine, ATV and other batteries. For every motor vehicle battery donated, Thunder Bay Auto Parts will donate $3 to the United Way. At the end of the event, Thunder Bay Auto Parts will double the donation to benefit the United Way. 

The battery drive is part of the Gold Certified Eco School’s plan to further reduce it’s carbon footprint and learn the importance of properly disposing the batteries. The main event will also be open for members of the community to take advantage of dropping off any electronic waste. Thunder Bay Auto Parts is a green automotive recycling facility that also offers the public electronic waste and battery recycling.So, take advantage of this great opportunity to get rid of any old batteries that are piling up in a bucket or cup somewhere in your home.

Also, dust off those old radios and cd players that no one seems to want to use anymore in this digital age. Have an old television that you cannot stand to see in the garage? Bring that down too! Let’s come together and make a difference
