The Schools Battery Recycling Competition is back!
A big thank you to everyone who took part last year! But it doesn’t stop there, the Power is in Your Hands to make the 2023-2024 competition the best year yet!
There’s so many positives to battery recycling! Recycling batteries can contribute to your school’s sustainable development goals to prevent climate change and help contribute to the circular economy by giving batteries a new life. You will also be supporting LauraLynn, Ireland’s Children’s Hospice, with every battery you recycle going towards a donation fund to support their vital work.
Schools taking on the Battery Recycling Challenge can enter the Schools Battery Recycling Competition. Your challenge is to collect as many batteries as you can and recycle them with WEEE Ireland. Plan a battery recycling drive and get collecting to be in with a chance to win a €2000 sports equipment voucher for your school!
How many boxes can your school fill?
The WEEE Ireland Schools Battery Recycling Competition is open for entries from 1st October 2023 to 12th April 2024 and is open to all primary and secondary schools that collect at least 10 5kg Battery Boxes in WEEE Ireland Battery Recycling counties
The materials in 297 waste batteries could be used to make a new saucepan!*
