During National Recycling Week (11th – 17th November) Planet Ark is promoting battery recycling as one of seven ‘recycling revolutions’ over the past 25 years.
Planet Ark has put together a report titled Recycling Revolution – A snapshot of the major revolutions in recycling in the past 25 years. The report examines the drivers and results of changes in recycling in seven key areas including: e-waste; household packaging; mobile phones and printer cartridges; batteries; workplaces; soft plastics; and food. Each section ends with a call to action to join the revolution.
Some of the battery initiatives highlighted in the report include:
– the launch of ALDI’s Activ Energy Battery Recycling Program in 2012
– Battery World’s Community Recycling Program for domestic and commercial batteries
– Century Yuasa Battery’s used lead acid battery recycling program
– the launch of the Australian Battery Recycling Initiative (ABRI).
