Battery Recycling at Battery World

Right now Australians recycle just 3% of our used batteries. Where can we recycle them? Many people don't know.

For Australian readers, you can take household batteries (AAA, AA, C, D and 9V) to any Aldi store. See my earlier post for more information.

Battery World take dead batteries of any kind. They can also give you one of these mini-bins, which are handy for collecting used batteries at home or in the office.

Now that we know where we to take them, hopefully the rate of recycling can increase. According to this week's War on Waste, Switzerland recycles 72% of its batteries. So we definitely have room for improvement.

PS. Now my local library is also collecting used batteries. Does yours? I'd be interested to know how widespread that is.
