With the nice weather we’ve been having, doing a little spring cleaning may be on your mind.
In advance of Earth Day, a Victoria group held a recycling drive this weekend at Mayfair Mall, with another planned, to take in electronic waste.
People dropped off all sorts of products from computers to TVs, radios, batteries and Christmas lights.
It was a free event, and all the products will be recycled in a responsible way. Island Return hopes event like these will educate people about recycling and reducing and reducing their environmental footprint.
“When people bring us electronics, we prioritize them and it gets transported to Vancouver where it gets dismantled in Vancouver so nothing ends up in the landfill or third world countries,” said Sophy Aroberge.
Another drive is taking place on April 23rd at Hillside Mall.
