Please keep all your used batteries. We are collecting them for recycling. There is a box in the front porch of the school.
WHY RECYCLE BATTERIES?
Batteries are made from important resources and chemicals, including lead, cadmium, zinc, lithium and mercury.
Recycling is one way you can help the environment. Each battery placed in the recycling box will be taken apart and many of the materials will be recovered and used to make new batteries or something else.
If you put your batteries into a rubbish bin they will be taken to landfill sites and the resources lost.

- All AAA and AA cells
