Students Launch Battery Recycling

Chisholm Catholic College, in Perth WA, has a committee of student leaders focused entirley on the ‘Environment’ portfolio.

These student leaders realised that in thier state of WA, over 18 million batteries are thrown into landfill each year. To raise awareness and faciliate recycling of batteries in their school community the Environment Committee has organised a battery bin, located in the student entry to reception, to collect dry-cell batteries.

These bins make it easy to recycle AA, AAA, C, D, button batteries, 9V and 6V batteries, and the broader school community has been invited to utilise this new service.
