Battery champ to be declared

Monday, October 19, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

The city of Austin has a Battery Recycling Challenge winner – but residents will have to wait a few days to find out who has risen above the rest to win $1,000. This year, Austinites recycled more than 5,800 pounds of batteries, which is a cause for celebration in and of itself. On Wednesday, City Council Member Leslie Pool, Austin Resource Recovery Director Bob Gedert and Tim Warren of Call2Recycle will announce this year’s winner at the North Village Branch Library at 10 a.m.
