Stittsville Lions Club e-waste collection a success

Residents of Stittsville have a lot of e-waste and were able to downsize their homes of unused electronics on April 27 thanks to the Stittsville & District Lions Club.

Cars, SUVs and vans lined up to unload at the Club’s hall on Main Street starting at 9:00am. Everything showed up from old TVs, radios, coffee machines, computers and parts, printers, microwave ovens – anything electronic.

It was a colder than usual, windy day, but the volunteer Lions were dressed for the weather and also kept warm with the good conversations they held with Stittsville residents dropping off their donations. “We are quite pleased with what people are bringing in and being a new member of the Lions Club its a great way to meet the people of Stittsville” said Lionette Marilyn Southall.

In the end, the Lions received a trailer full plus more from the worthwhile endeavour to rid our homes of e-waste. Let’s see what shows up when they hold their next e-waste collection.

And, on May 11, the Lions will again be collecting. This time glass, cans and plastics, with the proceeds going to the Canadian Diabetes Association. The money the Lions raise will assist in sending children with Diabetes to Camp Huronda and Camp Banting.
