Saturday May 13 brought 14 Rotarians to the North Elba Recycling Center where a collection point was set up to accept Lithium Ion (Li-on) batteries for recycling.  Over 225 lbs. of batteries were collected! Li-On batteries require special handling to recycle and as such are not included with household waste.  Our club partnered with Redwood Materials for special to ensure safe handling of these batteries in facilities that are set up for this.  It's quite specific so here's something from the EPA to explain further:  Thanks to Stephanie, Bill, Bridget, Tracey, Heather, Charlotte, Martha, Hannah, Susan, Lee, Chandler, Sean, John and Greg for volunteering.
