Interstate Batteries, Kansas City Royals Team Up for Recycling
Interstate Batteries, The Kansas City Royals, Players for the Planet and Bridging the Gap are joining forces for an e-waste recycling drive on Friday, Aug. 23 and Saturday, Aug.24. The two-day event will take place at Interstate All Battery Center in Overland Park, Kan., on Friday and at Kauffman Stadium on Saturday. Royals pitcher Jeremy Guthrie and infielders Mike Moustakas and Chris Getz are scheduled to appear throughout the event.
The Players for the Planet E-Waste recycling event will provide a simple and convenient way for Royals fans and local residents to recycle old electronics and used batteries in exchange for ticket vouchers to a Royals game. For a complete list of recyclable items, please visit www.royals.com/battery. In compliance with R2 certification, all hard drives will be destroyed.
“I’m thrilled Players for the Planet is coming to Kansas City,” said Guthrie. “Founders Chris Dickerson and Jack Cassel have done a lot of good over the years promoting environmental responsibility and I’m glad my teammates and I will be able to join Royals fans in the movement.”
Interstate Batteries is the presenting sponsor of the event with both Bridging the Gap, 610 Sports Radio and Vintage Tech Recyclers providing additional support.
Opportunities to recycle for tickets do not end Aug. 24. Interstate All Battery Center and Interstate Batteries in Kansas City and Omaha are accepting old batteries all season long, in exchange for ticket vouchers to see the Kansas City Royals live in action. Those making donations will receive one ticket voucher for every one pound of household batteries recycled and two ticket vouchers* for old car batteries brought in for recycling.
* Limit 4 vouchers per family. See store locations for additional details, while supplies last. Last Royals home game is Sunday Sept. 22, 2013.
