Battery and other e-waste recycling is reported to be the fastest-growing segment of the global solid waste stream management.

In Oz it is estimated 16,659 tonnes of waste batteries are not recycled.All batteries contain harmful substances that can damage the environment when improperly disposed into landfill.

By creating a circular economy for batteries Oz can create a new domestic industry, new jobs and greater environmental outcomes.
