Thanks to our friends at ERP (European Recycling Platform), The Big Battery collection is back for 2017! Last year, the schools of Cardiff did an amazing job, collecting 1311kg of used batteries. Hopefully we can beat that in 2017! The school who manages to collect the most will be rewarded with £300 worth of Amazon vouchers, with prizes for two runners up of £100 Amazon vouchers.
In the UK, so many people throw away their used batteries but don’t realise that they contain chemicals that could leak and cause damage to the environment. However batteries can be recycled, and in Cardiff, this is looked after by ERP.
To enter The Big Battery Collection, simply:
- Tell us if you would like to take part, no later than Friday May 19th.
- We will deliver your battery collection box to your school, but you don’t have to wait for your official box to start collecting! Feel free to use another container in the meantime.
- You will receive a date to let you know when your battery box will be picked up.
- The winner will be announced by Friday July 14th and we will arrange a time to present your vouchers.
