Recharge the future: Battery waste and recycling 

Did you know each year in the UK we throw away around 600 million batteries? Laid end-to-end these batteries would reach from the UK to Australia and back again. That is a lot of batteries!

Batteries play a huge part in our everyday lives and can be found in every room in the house. They are used in electrical and electronic items, such as, remote controls, mobile phones, toys, clocks and even doorbells. In fact, every person in Britain uses around 10 batteries a year.
