Batteries at Home

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, shavers, power tools or at the back of the kitchen drawer!

Batteries at homeWEEE Ireland’s Battery Recycling Challenge is urging everyone to dig out those waste batteries and safely recycle them in one of our Blue Battery Boxes in retailers across the country. 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 home and help contribute to the circular economy by giving batteries a new life! The power is in your hands…
