As the need for portability and mobility grows, so too does the demand for disposing of end-of-life batteries and mobile phones.
Each year, more than 8,000 tonnes of batteries end up in Australian landfills, and an estimated 16 million out-of-service mobile phones are lying around homes and offices across Australia. It is important to dispose of these safely and help to lessen hazardous waste disposal and its impact on our environment.
