​ School Battery Recycling Programme 2019

Hot on the heels of our success in Mindarie Regional Council’s 2018 School Battery Recycling programme, Peter Moyes Anglican Community School continues to collect and recycle used household batteries.

Our School received a special mention on the Mindarie Regional Council website:

“The school who jumped up the league table the most through the year is Peter Moyes Anglican Community College with a total of 115 kg of batteries collected. Well done!”

The results for the 2019 Term 1 collection are already in and we have jumped to 2nd place out of the 157 schools registered, collecting 42kg of used batteries, just 3kg behind the leader.

Please help us to continue to do our bit and reduce the amount of batteries that are poured into landfill and the harmful effect that this has on our environment.

How can I help?

Make a habit of collecting used household batteries at home and bring them to school. They can be handed in to Primary School Reception or placed directly in the Battery Recycling metal bin located outside the Year 5 classrooms.

What batteries can be collected?

Dry cell batteries include AA, AAA (single use or rechargeable), C, D, button batteries, 9V, 6V and cordless power tools.

What batteries cannot be collected?

Lead acid batteries, such as car batteries, cannot be collected. Please contact your local council for details of how to dispose of these batteries.
