Stewards Choose Battery Recycling Project

Volunteer members of the "Retiree Environmental Stewardship Program" (RESP) recently completed a 10-week series of workshops focusing on environmental issues, resulting in the decision to raise public awareness about the proper recycling of rechargeable batteries.

In an effort to reduce the accumulation of toxic materials in landfills, the volunteers will conduct a campaign titled “Know Your Batteries,” which will focus on public education about the various types of household batteries and their proper disposal.

RESP is a collaborative effort of RSVP, Cornell University, Chemung EMC and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Schuyler County.

Older adults interested in participating in community volunteer opportunities should contact Schuyler-Yates RSVP serving Schuyler and Yates Counties at (607) 535-7105 for further information.
