Canada's vehicle recycling program drives Saskatchewan's future



    
    Saskatchewan Environmental Society is at the wheel steering Saskatchewan
    towards a cleaner and healthier environment
    

    SASKATOON, April 15 /CNW/ - Saskatchewan residents will soon breathe
easier thanks to Canada's new vehicle recycling program, Retire Your Ride.
Managed and delivered locally by the Saskatchewan Environmental Society and
nationally by Clean Air Foundation, the program aims to effectively and
efficiently recycle 1995 model year or older vehicles in an environmentally
responsible manner. This national initiative is an effort to improve air
quality and encourage the use of sustainable transportation.
    The Government of Canada has committed to investing up to $92 million to
the Retire Your Ride program to help Canadians recycle their older, higher
polluting vehicles and make sustainable transportation choices, leading to
reduced air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.
    On April 22, Saskatchewan Environmental Society will be hosting an event
to announce the details of the program.

    
    Where: Civic Square, Saskatoon City Hall

    Date:  Wednesday April 22, 2009

    Time:  12:30pm-1:30pm
