Are you up for a challenge! Can you become a battery recycling champion?
Did you Know!
Each year we throw away around 6 million batteries! That’s over 20 000 tons (equivalent of 4000 elephants) into landfill each year. These batteries then take over 100 years to decompose, whilst leaking dangerous chemicals and polluting the surrounding soil and water.
There’s another choice. Instead of throwing your batteries away, why not do something amazing?
If we recycle our batteries we can prevent this terrible pollution and create useful materials such as zinc, steel and manganese.
We ask that all used batteries are collected and returned to school in the box provided. The children are encouraged to involve as many people as they can with this challenge. Involve the family, friends, your street, local library, work place etc.
We have the opportunity to win some fantastic prizes for those who go that extra mile to collect as many used batteries as possible.
