Caerphilly County Borough Council has been at the forefront of battery recycling for several years and provides battery containers for the public at its six household recycling/civic amenity sites.
Schools across Caerphilly are all doing their bit to help the environment. In addition to the battery recycling scheme, they also recycle paper, food and are part of the Eco-Schools Green Flag Award.
In December 2011, Caerphilly County Borough Council launched a Schools Battery Recycling Initiative at Fochriw Primary School. The initiative was created to encourage pupils, staff and parents to prevent thousands of used batteries from going to landfill.
