On February 18, we celebrate International Battery Day

Most of us have at least one battery-powered device at home. This is a solution that has been helping to reduce energy consumption and bills for years. However, it also has its downsides. Batteries are harmful to our planet and become hazardous waste when they run out. They contain many harmful substances that can poison water and land. One small button battery can contaminate a cubic meter of the environment!
How to celebrate this day? It is worth considering whether there are any items with used batteries in our homes that we should dispose of. Let’s check if your batteries are still functional. Let’s consider whether we don’t buy too many disposable batteries instead of rechargeable ones.
On the occasion of this holiday, we would also like to remind you that we do not throw batteries into mixed waste, but into dedicated containers or to PSZOK. By returning used batteries to designated collection points, we protect the environment.
We encourage you to watch a short animation explaining why battery recycling should be important to each of us: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJ1eXo2KUbo&t
