The Rotary Club of Port Fairy was keen to promote a battery disposal facility in Port Fairy and, as part of its research, we discovered that a company called EcoBatt, were already in the process of installing disposal centres in various IGAs and Home Hardware shops in south west Victoria.
The Rotary Club is therefore pleased that our town's first recycling box has now been installed in Brookes Hardware store in Sackville Street.
People are encouraged to make use of this excellent facility that was setup to not only dispose of a wide range of batteries but also divert them from landfill to a suitable recycling centre.
Apart from a wide range of domestic / household batteries, the smaller button batteries and selected appliance batteries can also be deposited. Additionally, you can even dispose of old mobile phones and chargers.
This is a great initiative and we commend EcoBatt and Home Hardware for supporting this initiative.
