The Barrie Green Party of Ontario Constituency Association invites you to take part in our first ever
EARTH HOUR SUPER-DRIVE !
Saturday, March 27th.
We are combining an E-Waste drive, a Clothing drive, and a Food drive. You can bring items to our central depot, or contact us and we’ll pick them up from your driveway.
E-mail us with name, address, phone number and what you’d like picked up and we’ll arrange it with you. Ideal pickup is the morning of Saturday, March 27.
In partnership with GreenGo Recycling Solutions Inc., WE WANT YOUR E-WASTE. That means anything electronic (e.g. with a circuit board), or anything that plugs in or uses batteries. So you can offload old computers, monitors, printers, fax machines, phones (landline or cell), even old blenders, coffeemakers, kettles, heaters, toys, whatever.
All those things you’ll unplug for Earth Hour and then realize you don’t really need anymore – make Earth Hour last all year!
Also accepting old batteries & scrap metal.
In partnership with Nifty Thrifty, Barrie’s free clothing centre, we are collecting used but GOOD CONDITION (and clean) clothing. We are especially looking for:
– baby and child clothing
– all jeans, especially male (boys/teen/mens)
– plus-size clothing
Nifty Thrifty provides free or very low-priced clothing to people in need. (Please, no dirty or torn/worn clothing.) Make space in your closet and drawers by donating things you never get around to wearing. Someone will really appreciate your gift.
In partnership with the Grocery Assistance Program (GAP), we will accept donations of canned foods or toiletries, especially diapers. If we’re coming to pick up your old clothes or e-waste and help you clean out your closet, please help us refill the GAP shelves with a food item. If you’re dropping off at our depot, please include a donation for GAP.
Special Guest MIKE SCHREINER, leader of the Green Party of Ontario, will be here in Barrie, rolling up his sleeves and helping us collect and sort your e-waste, clothing, and food. Drop by if you’d like to meet him in person and see him break a sweat to help out citizens of Barrie.
If you want to save us the trip to your house, you can bring items to our collection depot between 9 – 12 pm (noon) at Nifty Thrifty. 110 Dunlop St. W.
No Dunlop Street access: Access is off the Toronto St. parking lot across from Casa Mia restaurant, between Meineke and Transcom. Note that street parking is free, but the parking lot is $3 all day.
Following the Super-Drive, there will be a special luncheon for Mike at the Thai Bamboo Restaurant at 61 King St. West noon – 2 pm, following which he will chair a regional Town Hall meeting (open to the public) at Bodystream (51 King St.) from 2 – 5 pm.
More details on lunch and Town Hall available by e-mail – please RSVP
Please note: the Earth Hour Super-Drive is wholly hosted by the Barrie Green Party of Ontario Constituency Association; while we are supporting worthy community partners (GreenGo, Nifty Thrifty, GAP), their participation should not be construed as endorsing the Green Party of Ontario or Canada.
