A Competition about collecting "Waste Batteries"
Batteries may be the most hazardous wastes because they contain heavy metals and corrosive electrolyte solutions that are the source of their energy. There are eight metals commonly used in batteries including lead, mercury,nickel, cadmium, lithium, silver, zinc and magnese.
Therefore, we thought that the preffered alternative for hazardous batteries is rcycling.And we have started a competition among our students about collecting waste batteries at our homes and in our environmnet and sending these hazardous materials to rcycling centers. This project has been started on 16th February and will be ended on 12th June..
