Get set for spring by recycling some unused stuff—while supporting some good causes:
Ontario Electronic Stewardship, an industry-based non-profit which provides collection sites for electronics waste, also partners with organizations to host waste-collection events. For example, you can contribute your e-waste to support Broadview Avenue Public School Parent Council or Osgoode Parent School Council on April 21, or the Girl Guides of Canada on April 28. See the website for details and locations.
Clean out your closet while supporting the Canadian Cancer Society and the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation: donate your “gently used” clothing and accessories to the Clean Your Closet for Cancer event on April 29. Donations are accepted up to April 21. Check the website or Facebook page for details.
Let us know of other recycling events you find out about!
