Join us for a full day of action for the planet at this exciting indoor/outdoor event at the Burlington Centre! Bring your e-waste, items for the Repair Cafe, check out EV’s, get some free Aura EV Charging, participate in some eco-trivia and spin to win, and more!

The convenient Drive-Thru component will take place at the Guelph Line/Fairview St. parking lot at the Burlington Centre from 10am to 4pm where volunteers will gladly accept a variety of items to be properly recycled.
