⚠️ Over 1.6 billion electricals with hidden batteries were thrown away last year! That's over 3000 batteries chucked in the bin every minute.⚠️ 

A lot of people admit to binning batteries as they don’t know what to do with them. But fear not – they can be recycled! And your nearest drop-off point may be closer than you think.

All batteries should be recycled separately and never binned as they can cause fires when thrown away with our household rubbish or recycling. Find all your local battery recycling points by using @RecycleYourElectricals_ locator - see link in bio.

♻ Remember, any empty spray bottles can be recycled! Just give them a rinse with water and reattach the cap before adding to your recycling bin. Or, better yet, why not reuse it to water your plants?
