Jessica Sheridan at EnviroCentre sent us word of this Saturday’s Enviro Day and E-waste event at the Preston Farmers’ Market. It’s on Saturday, August 10, 2013 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Il Postino parking lot (corner of Preston and Louisa Streets):

Bring back your household electronics to have them recycled locally, safely, and in a sustainable manner.

Shop for delicious local foods and get rid of your old electronics, all in one convenient location!

Please help us divert electronic waste from landfill. Full list of accepted electronics at http://envirocentre.ca/services/enviroboutique/e-waste-recycling-program/.

We hope to see you there!”

VRTUCAR, Fair Trade Ottawa Équitable, RightBike, Ecology Ottawa, Hydro Ottawa and Windmill Development Group will also be at Enviro Day, along with the market’s vendors of produce, baked goods and more. Come on out if you can.
