Thousands of schools across the UK have been busy collecting used batteries and adding them to their school containers for recycling. We hope to recycle 4 million batteries across the campaign, so to get your school involved, make sure to register here.
Congratulations to Talia from Glendower Prep School who won herself an iPad for being our first Battery Recycling Pioneer of the Month!
Talia has collected over 2,000 batteries by herself after being inspired by an episode of Blue Planet. When she realised she could do something to help the environment she asked friends, family, neighbours and local shop owners to give her any used batteries. Talia said “I’ve enjoyed talking to people about the Big Battery Hunt and asking them to help. I just want to make the environment a cleaner place.”
If you have a stand out pupil you would like to nominate for next month’s Battery Recycling Pioneer, tell us their story by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
With thousands of free school containers starting to arrive in schools, our recycling partner, BatteryBack, has created a handy step-by-step video guide to help you assemble them. Watch the video here to see how to assemble yours, and then get busy filling it!
With your help, the Big Battery Hunt hopes to make a positive difference to our planet and the way that young people think about recycling batteries. Make sure your school rises to the challenge too!
