BATTERY RECYCLING – most of us would like to recycle our batteries but collecting enough to warrant a trip to the recycling centre takes forever. We are trialling battery collection at the Eastbourne Library Foyer. These batteries will be taken to Bunnings when enough have been collected.
YES: AA, AAA, 9V, 6V, power tool, button cell and other hand-held sized batteries are ok.
SAFETY: Please put tape over all terminals to prevent short circuits – easier and safer for you to do this as you collect them.
NO: Sorry, no acid batteries, car batteries, items with batteries built in, or anything bigger than 20cm x 15cm (won’t fit in the recycling bin at Bunnings).
