Button Battery Recycling Program
The Westborough Woman's Club is pleased to announce that their button battery recycling program continues to be successful. The club collects the button batteries from hearing aids, watches, clocks, etc. for recycling due to the mercury in them. In cooperation with the Board of Health boxes are at their office, the senior center, library, jewelers, and at club meetings. Each year the club has received a five hundred dollar check for the recycling. The money is used for the club's Community Improvement projects. Last year the club donated one thousand two hundred dollars to the school department. The money is earmarked for electrode pads and batteries for the Automatic External Defibrillators (AED) at the schools. Club members are now investigating ideas for a town project for this year.
The Westborough Woman's Club is a member of the General Federation of Women's Clubs. For information on programs, projects or membership please call Judy at 508-870-1895.Add a comment
