Did you know that the largest lithium and cobalt mines in the western hemisphere can be found in the junk drawers of America? It’s true, and one local company is trying to do something about it.

Alexis Georgeson, vice president of Communications & Government Relations at Redwood Materials will be the guest speaker at this week’s Rotary Club of Carson City meeting. She will give an over view of Redwood Materials and the company mission to collect and sustainably recycle, refine, and remanufacture these batteries in the United States. The public is invited to attend the meeting that takes place Tuesday, June 14, at 12:30 in the Brewery Arts Center’s Grand Ballroom.

Based in Carson City, Redwood Materials is currently working to find new ways to recycle and reuse the millions of Electric Vehicle and similar batteries at the end of their usable life. It is also looking for innovations to turn waste into profit and solve the environmental impacts of new products before they happen.

Redwood Materials will be at the meeting accepting all end-of-life batteries. They will also collect any old rechargeable devices that contain a lithium-ion battery and sustainably recycling them for free. Bring any cell phones, tablets, electric toothbrushes, vapes, power tool batteries, Bluetooth speakers, rechargeable vacuum batteries, video game e-bike batteries, wireless headphones, and more!
