National Battery Day is a little-known, unofficial holiday that is observed on February 18, the birthday of Alessandro Volta, an Italian physicist and inventor of the electric battery in 1745. Although the day recognizes the value of batteries in our day-to-day lives, to OC Waste & Recycling (OCWR), the day provides a great opportunity to talk about old, used batteries and what OC residents should do with them. No. 1 is to keep them out of landfills.
OC Waste and Recycling today released its 2017 schedule of events. The Department is excited to continue the Eco Challenge Day collection events along with several community outreach opportunities across the County. Detailed information for each event will be posted as it becomes available.
