The Newfoundland and Labrador Lung Association, in partnership with the Conservation Corps of Newfoundland and Labrador, are celebrating a successful first year of Retire Your Ride - Canada's national vehicle recycling program.
According to a news release, the event will highlight the achievements of the program in Newfoundland and Labrador, and serve as an opportunity to release a new promotional video.
The event will be held in St. John's at A-1 Automotive (395 East White Hills Rd.) Thursday from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Several speakers will comment on the continued importance of Retire Your Ride, a program that has recycled 275 cars from the province's communities and highways.
"We have come a long way in just one year with Retire Your Ride," says Amanda Kinsman, Retire Your Ride's provincial vehicle recycling co-ordinator. "I'm enthusiastic about the success we have generated so far and I'm confident we are capable of removing far more high-polluting cars from our roads in 2010."
