Batteries in your Community

Did you know that for every 10 AA batteries sold only 4 are recycled? They could be in old torches, cameras, speakers or fitness equipment!

Batteries at homeWEEE Ireland’s Battery Recycling Challenge is urging community groups to become waste battery collection champions using our Blue Battery Boxes. It’s an easy way to do your part to help tackle climate change and protect your local 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 community activities and help contribute to the circular economy by giving batteries a new life! The power is in your hands…

The materials in 120 waste batteries could be used to make a new watering can!*
