Recycle to Read Batteries Collection

Dear Parents/Carers,

Our school is recycling batteries to protect the planet (and for a chance to win book vouchers for the school).
We need your help - plus your child could win some fantastic eco-inspired prizes too!

How can you help?
1. Hunt out used batteries at home. We are collecting AA, AAA, C, D, 9V and button batteries.
2. Tape over the contacts of lithium (Li) and button batteries (see below).
3. Put them in a tied plastic bag (preferably reused)
4. Take them to school.
5. Enter the prize draw at

Safety first:
Not only is storing and recycling batteries safely great for the environment, it can also help reduce risks associated with batteries:
● Batteries can cause serious injury or death if swallowed, please keep batteries out of reach of small children and pets.
● Lithium and button batteries need to be taped so their contacts don’t touch, as they could short circuit if they do.
Use sticky tape over the contacts (top and bottom of batteries). Button batteries can be placed in a line between two sections of sticky tape. Lithium batteries can look like
any battery, but they will have lithium (Li) written on them.

Many thanks for your support and happy battery hunting!
