Batteries at School or College
Did you know that the average household has 12 used batteries hiding in their homes that could be recycled? They could be in old toys, toothbrushes or games console controllers. Imagine how many batteries you could collect with your whole class involved!
WEEE Ireland’s Battery Recycling Challenge is urging schools to become a battery recycling point for their students and staff, to dig out those waste batteries and safely recycle them in our Blue Battery Boxes. It’s an easy way to do your part to help tackle climate change and protect the environment. And every battery recycled by WEEE Ireland goes towards a donation fund to LauraLynn, Ireland’s Children’s Hospice.
Why not add battery recycling to your classroom, add to your sustainable development goals and help contribute to the circular economy by giving batteries a new life! The power is in your hands…
The materials in 13 waste batteries could be used to make new spectacle frames!*
