Since 2017, almost nine tonnes of used household batteries have been kept out of Colchester's landfill through recycling efforts. When batteries are thrown into the garbage- they go to landfills. In the landfill- the casing breaks down and the toxic chemicals from the battery leaks into the soil. It then goes into our water supply and eventually to our oceans and waterways.
Stingrays- we can help stop this cycle by educating our families and friends about where batteries go when they die. They DO NOT belong in the garbage!!!
Our very own Stingray Eco-Team is collecting used and dead batteries again this year. Please make sure to tape the ends with masking tape or painter's tape so that they do not spark. A bucket will be placed in the front hallway near the staffroom.
Please continue to help us save the Earth StellaMaris!
