School's Recycle Program
Battery World has been educating primary school children about battery recycling through our local school's program since 2006. School children learn about the need for recycling from the local Battery World representative who is usually accompanied by "BW", the big smooth jut-jawed super hero. School appearances are fun and teachers and children participate in a range of relevant and entertaining activities. All materials (including education kits) deal in a factual but non-scary way with the impact of batteries on the environment.
A school's recycling package can be developed according to each school's needs depending on the resources of the school and local Battery World store. Battery World stores offer all schools and customers the opportunity to take advantage of:
- Web based - Teacher resources (accesible once you sign on as a Recycling Member)
- Batteries accepted in every Battery World store.
- Opportunity to publish your "Battery Recycling Poster" and recieve a copy in your school.
Additional resources depending on school and Store's resources can be:
Think Green, Act Purple posters
Information sessions for staff
- School Assembly talk
- Battery recycling bin
- Newsletter inserts
- Mini Recycling bins
