Amy Smith and her family of Nelson are the lucky winners of a $25 gift certificate from SHARE Nelson for being the superstar recyclers for a contest held in April.

Pictured are Amy, Sianna and Tavian Morningstar and SHARE employee Gabrielle Dejong.

They brought in the heaviest single weight of batteries, tipping the scales at 14 pounds, pushing the total weight of recycled batteries and cell phones to over 950 pounds in the six months since the battery recycling depot opened.

Do you have batteries and cell phones to be recycled?

Get charged up to bring these toxic items to the collection site at 612 Lakeside Dr. in Nelson.
