The great battery challenge

Did you know?

  • Every year, UAE residents buy millions of batteries, and once consumed, they end up in landfills.
  • These batteries can take up to a hundred years to decompose.
  • Batteries are made of loads of useful materials, like the metals steel and zinc and can be easily recycled just like newspapers, soft drink cans and plastic bottles.
