The Regional Municipality of Durham Region, Forests Ontario and Raw Materials Company have all come together to encourage the planting of trees throughout the region… Collectively they hope to reach the goal set out in the Durham Community Climate Change Local Action Plan.
On June 3, Durham council endorsed Raw Marterials Comapany as a corporate champion for the tree program.
The company will now donate $1:10 for every kilogram of single-use batteries recycled at participating locations to Forests Ontario to plant trees throughout Durham Region.
