Dear LWF supporter,

Event idea spotlight: e-waste roundup
Keep end-of-life materials out of the landfill while supporting a healthy Lake Winnipeg! Many cities have depots to drop off materials like batteries, paint, electronics, and even the kitchen sink! In Winnipeg, there are three locations to take items to be recycled, reused, composted or resold — and, it’s free to do so. Ask your friends, family and neighbours for a donation to LWF, then collect their old microwaves, household cleaners and more. Learn about recycling beyond the blue bin on our website.
Did you know that rain and surface runoff can cause chemicals from landfills to leach into groundwater? Groundwater can carry those chemicals from the landfill to our lake. By organizing an e-waste roundup fundraiser, you’ll be supporting a healthy Lake Winnipeg in more ways than one!
Thank you for your continued support. We hope you are staying safe and healthy, and we look forward to seeing you at the lake again soon!
