Batteries can be recycled with the ERP Battery Compliance Scheme. Collection boxes are used to gather used batteries which will be subsequently collected and recycled by the ERP scheme.
To boost awareness of battery recycling, ERP has produced a short film. It is aimed at school children, although is a useful source of information for anyone who wants to know more about how batteries are recycled. The 3 minute film, starring a 12 year old boy, follows the journey of a battery from the boy’s home to school and then on to the battery recycling facility. ERP has also produced assembly slides and notes for schools which explain how batteries are recycled. These resources, along with the film, are available to download from ERP’s schools pages at www.erp-batteries.co.uk/schools.
If your school or organisation would like an ERP collection box, please request one online at www.erp-batteries.co.uk.
