#TakeCharge for a Greener Seattle!

Call2Recycle and John Curley Invite Environmentally-Conscious Residents to a Battery Collection and Recycling Event June 28 at Westlake Park.

Building on the success of last year's Battery Recycling Day (which was proclaimed by Mayor Mike McGinn), Call2Recycle's event is back again. Seattle area residents have another unique opportunity to make the city more green by participating in a city-wide battery collection and recycling celebration June 28. Organized by Call2Recycle(R)-North America's first and largest battery stewardship and recycling program-the battery collection event is not only an opportunity to go green with your batteries, but to have great fun doing it.

Celebration Details:
When: Friday, June 28, 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Where: Westlake Park, 401 Pine St., Seattle
Collection Drive: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Tip the Scale Challenge: Noon - 2 p.m.
Meet celebrity guest John Curley: Noon - 2 p.m.
Drawings for prizes will be held during the event

John Curley, Emmy Award-winning former host of King 5 TV's Evening Magazine, will be on hand to meet guests as they drop off batteries. He'll also take part in the Tip the Scale Challenge.

"I'm excited to see if Seattleites can collect enough batteries to lift me off the ground," says Curley. "Come on down, bring your batteries and do your part to make Seattle even greener."

What is the Tip the Scale Challenge? Collected batteries and cellphones will be placed on Call2Recycle's custom-built, super-sized 16-by-9-foot scale. Each battery donated brings us closer to lifting celebrity John Curley off the ground. Questions about batteries or the event? Tweet @Call2Recycle using hashtag #TakeCharge.

Call2Recycle will accept all types of household batteries (weighing up to 11 pounds each), including both single-use batteries and rechargeable batteries commonly found in laptops and digital cameras. Obsolete cell phones can also be dropped off.
