Bring in a car battery, get a buck ó and help save the environment, too.
AAA Carolinas is offering $1 for each car or boat battery brought in to a AAA Car Care Center in North Carolina during Earth Week (April 19-25).
“Improperly disposed batteries do serious harm to our environment,” says David Parsons, president of AAA Carolinas. “This program is a win-win for everyone, including motorists, AAA, battery recycle centers and the environment at large.
