Hand over the old batteries!

Already for four years Ecoclub is engaged in project on collection of batteries. This initiative dates back to June 2013, when the project was launched in the city of Dnipro by NGO EkoDnipro. Today it is an all-Ukrainian volunteer project that has 1500 points of battery acceptance throughout Ukraine!

Its main goal is to collect and transfer spent batteries for recycling to preserve the environment.
In 2014-2016, Ecoclub managed to collect and transport over 700 kg of spent batteries in the city of Dnipro. Indifferent people, who wish the old batteries and accumulators do not fall into the landfill, bring them to the collection points with confidence that the waste will be safely disposed of.

The batteries brought to Ecoclub are checked. One third of them are those that are still working but have less power than the new ones! So before you “write off”, carefully check your batteries.
The battery collection project is still in the active phase. Currently, its coordinator is Mary Sydoruk, member of Ecoclub.
