London Drugs is hosting a Recycling Day for Prince George residents on Sunday April 14. The event encourages Prince George residents to responsibly recycle old household goods at the end of their usable life, electronics and packaging to assist with reducing the amount of waste going to the landfill.
“It is a great opportunity for spring cleaning. Residents can bring their recyclable items for recycling rather than throwing them away including electronics, small appliances, batteries and even Styrofoam,” said Christian Schenk, Store Manager at the Prince George London Drugs location, in a news release. “Together with the help of Prince George residents, we can divert thousands of pounds of materials from the landfill through this event.”
London Drugs stores recently celebrated a 93.5 per cent waste diversion rate through their own diligent in-store recycling strategies.
