Recycling Futures

How can you be part of Recycling Futures?

By using your extensive networks to assist us in accessing Used Lead Acid Batteries (ULAB’s).

 If you have a friend, business associate or family member involved in a service station, mechanical workshop, marine centre, mower repairs, transport, farm machinery, engineering, etc. are you able to approach them to see what they do with their ULAB’s and ask if they would be prepared to donate them to Rotary as part of our fund raising to support our community. Alternatively, Bob is happy to go with you to meet and explain the benefits of donating ULAB’s to Rotary.

See the full letter from Pres. John in the next screen.  

While you are thinking of recycling, don't forget to take your bottles, cans etc. to Containers for Change - give them our details Rotary Club of Cleveland C10216475 and the funds will be put straight into the club account.
