Three Cowra community members have decided to collect and recycle any unwanted car, truck and boat batteries that people may have laying around.

Profit from the recycling of these batteries will go to Cowra Information and Neighbourhood Centre’s fundraising for a crisis accommodation for families and homeless youth.

If you have any batteries that may be laying around at home, workplace or farm, you can call 6340 1100 and arrange a collection pickup, or arrange a drop off time, if that works better for you.

CINC CEO, Fran Stead, said she is blown away with the generosity of people approaching the organisation in a bid to get this accommodation up off the ground.  

“We want to educate people that we actually have a problem in Cowra,” she said. 

“This is a massive step forward.”

All money raised will be held in a separate account.

For more information on the scheme, please contact the Cowra Information and Neighbourhood Centre on  6340 1100.
