Button-cell Battery Collection To Raise Money for Hamilton Seniors

640px-LR44_Button_Cell_BatteryTurning in your dead button-cell batteries will help the Hamilton Council on Aging and the environment at the same time.

Bring button-cell batteries from your watches, hearing aids, cameras, calculators, dog collars, small toys and other items to the Hamilton Senior Center, 299 Bay Road, to be included in the button-cell battery rebate program.

For every pound that the Hamilton COA collects, they receive $100 up to 10 pounds in a calendar year.

Millions of these batteries containing mercury are disposed each year into the municipal solid waste stream, so turning them in as part of the button-cell battery rebate program will help the environment and the seniors at the same time.

Call COA Director Mary Beth Lawton at the Senior Center at 978-468-5595 for further information. Anyone who would also like to host a box for collection at your business should call Lawton too.
