Battery Recycling
by Oliver Jackson - Monday, 11 August 2014, 4:57 PM

recycle batteriesThere's a new, small, battery recycling bin in the Admin foyer which can be used for disposing of pretty much any used battery. Any brand of AA, AAA, C, D, 9V batteries, button cells (both rechargeable and non-rechargeable) are accepted - simply drop your used batteries into the bin.

When the bin is full its contents will be transferred to a designated battery recycling point for processing. Batteries can be processed to recover plastics and metals, some of which are used to manufacture new batteries. Recycling also removes them from landfill where they would otherwise slowly leak toxic chemicals.

The attached Planet Ark battery recycling factsheet provides more information if you need.
