WEEE Pledge - School Battery Recycling Challenge
WEEE Pledge is a FREE battery recycling programme designed for schools. By engaging in fun learning activities and taking charge of battery recycling, students (and their families) learn about the importance of being responsible for the environment and how to make a difference in each community. Due to Covid restrictions, WEEE Ireland are unable to collect from schools for now and we are urging families to continue their great work recycling their batteries by bringing them to recycling centres or into one of it’s participating stores who sell batteries.
Our LauraLynn Partnership
All batteries recycled in the blue WEEE Ireland battery boxes help create a donation fund for LauraLynn, Ireland’s Children’s Hospice and with the help of an old friend, Bosco, WEEE Ireland was delighted to deliver a further donation of €50,000 to LauraLynn bringing the total donation to €330,000 since our partnership with the charity began. This has helped LauraLynn to deliver invaluable palliative care and support for children with life-limiting conditions and their families.
Retailer WE’ll Take it Back Campaign
The ‘WE'll Take it Back’ Programme is fronted by WEEE Ireland and other stakeholders to support electrical retailers in their obligation to oﬀer a FREE e-waste take back service. There is now no longer any purchase required within participating stores to avail of this service, as long as a similar product is oﬀered by the retailer.
Small Things Matter
Recycling electrical and lighting waste benefits the environment, allowing plastics, metals and glass to be recovered for manufacturing and alsoLauraLynn, Ireland’s only Children’s Hospice. And it's not just the big appliances that count... Small things matter too!
That's why WEEE Ireland have launched a new campaign with LauraLynn, Ireland's Children's Hospice - Small Things Matter driving home the message that every small piece of e-waste can easily be recycled at recycling centres and participating electrical retailers.
