Europian Battery Recycling Day
This week, the European Battery Recycling Week is celebrated in a number of European countries, including the Czech Republic. The aim is to remind the public of the importance of sorting and recycling batteries. After all, approximately 13.3 million batteries enter circulation in Europe every day, and 3.33 billion annually. About three quarters of them are sent for recycling. The campaign is announced by the association of national organizations for the collection of batteries EUCOBAT.
The patron of the European Battery Recycling Week is the company ECOBAT - a Czech non-profit management company that has been providing comprehensive services related to the return of batteries for 20 years. In 2022, it became the first company in the Czech Republic to receive a new authorization from the Ministry of the Environment to operate a collective system for the return of waste batteries in the Czech Republic.
