CONTEST ANNOUNCEMENT: BATTERY COLLECTION CHALLENGE
6 September 2018
Rutland County Solid Waste District announces their participation in the inaugural Vermont Battery Collection Challenge. The challenge seeks to rally Vermont residents to properly recycle their batteries, thus diverting them from landfills, lowering the risk for potential safety incidents and reducing local waste collection costs.
The residents served by Rutland County Solid Waste District will compete against other solid waste districts and alliances to see which recycles the most batteries (by volume) per capita through December 31, 2018. The winning regional solid waste district or alliance will be announced January 2019 and will receive a trophy prize.
In 2017, the leading solid waste district in Vermont collected slightly over 3 ounces or four AA batteries per person – certainly we can beat that! Rutland County Solid Waste District has accepted the challenge and we NEED your help to win! Please join us by recycling ALL your household batteries through the end of the year at any of the drop-off facilities below or your towns rural collection day– bragging rights are on the line!
