AAA Carolinas hosts annual Great Fall Battery Roundup | Business
AAA Carolinas will host its annual Great Fall Battery Roundup, a used battery collection and recycling program, as part of Car Care Month in October. It is available to the general public, as well as AAA members.
North Carolina motorists can receive $5 for every auto or marine battery they bring in to any one of 24 AAA Car Care Centers, or 34 Approved Auto Repair shops from October 16 through the 31.
“Improperly disposed batteries do serious harm to our environment,” said David E. Parsons, president and CEO of AAA Carolinas. “This program is a win-win for everyone including motorists, AAA, battery recycle centers and the environment at large.”
AAA encourages residents to help fight stream and ground pollution and raise awareness by recycling batteries at one of 58 convenient North Carolina locations. Check the list here for locations and call for directions and hours.
“We hope AAA’s Great Fall Battery Roundup will discourage illegal dumping and encourage recycling,” said Judson Patterson, AAA Carolinas field supervisor and battery specialist.
