Batteries.....Australians dispose of 8000 tones of batteries each year , full of acid, heavy metals and recoverable valuable materials.
Faaaaar out......8000 tonnes.....imagine what that looks like!
With only 3% of all Australian batteries being recycled this is an area that needs BIG change - and yet it’s so easy! These little power cells are a disaster in the red bin and landfill!
Follow these TWO simple steps:
1. COLLECT THEM - Clearly mark a container and put it somewhere safe & accessible and collect your used batteries
2. DROP THEM OFF - Recycling collection centers are in heaps of places -
Battery World (go figure!),

No excuses - collect your batteries, recycle them properly and TELL A FRIEND or five!
Get 'em outta landfill!!!
