September 9th 2015 - First European Battery Recycling Day


The use of mobile energy from batteries increasingly becomes an essential part of our life. Accordingly, this implies that more and more batteries, both single use and rechargeable batteries, are discarded by consumers. The collection schemes for batteries, members of Eucobat, strive for a better environment by collecting ever more used batteries and by recycling them ever better.


On September 9th 2015, Eucobat and its members, the national compliance organizations for batteries, will organize the first European Battery Recycling Day, in order to raise the awareness of consumers and stakeholders on the importance of the separate collection of spent batteries and their environmentally sound recycling.


In more than 15 countries, dedicated events and specific sensibilisation campaigns will be organized by the different collection schemes:

·      Educational campaigns at schools

·      Social media campaigns

·      Collection events at the collection points

·      Press conferences

·      Contests

·      Information campaigns

·      Distribution of specific collection boxes

·      Roadshows

·      …


More information on the activities in each country will follow soon.
