Did you know that by throwing your used batteries into your kerbside bins these not only contaminate our environment but can also cause rubbish truck & tip fires? Did you know that the insides of batteries are a valuable resource that are infinite and can be recycled?
A national recycling scheme ‘B-cycle’ is now in action to make it easier for Australians to dispose of their old batteries in a safe way with the introduction of recycling bins at your local Woolworths, Coles, Bunnings, Officeworks and ALDI stores!
B-cycle estimates that Australians buy enough batteries every year to circle our planet 2.3 times This is an enormous amount of batteries in Australia going to waste
So start collecting your used batteries in a seperate container at home, work, school and drop off to your local battery recycling bin. By making a little extra effort to recycle batteries the right way you are doing your bit for our planet
For more information including drop off locations visit the B cycle website here
