The all important battery
From laptops to mobile phones, batteries are integral to both our modern way of living and advancements across all of our industries. So, it’s no surprise that we’re using over 670 million of them a year in the UK alone.
The battery easily hides and goes to landfill
Unfortunately, as a nation, we produce 20,000 tonnes of waste batteries each year. A significant percentage of these go to landfill. And, in doing so, we’re putting our own health, local wildlife and the environment at risk. This is because batteries contain all sorts of hazardous substances, like mercury, lead and cadmium.
So, it’s really important we dispose of batteries correctly and maximise their resource potential. By resource, we mean saving the precious metals within each battery (like lead, lithium, cobalt and copper).
