Did you know that properly recycling your batteries can help protect animals? Batteries that go out with the trash end up in landfills, adding to solid waste that can be harmful to the environment. But you can help, by entering the Earth Rangers Battery Blitz Contest!
- Build or design a battery collection box to safely store dead batteries you find around the house. Make your box as creative as possible – the sky’s the limit!
- Collect dead batteries from around the house and safely store them in your new collection box. Tip: Safely store them by either placing each battery in a clear, sealable plastic bag (which is recycled at the battery sorting plant), or by taping the ends of the battery with electrical tape or duct tape.
- Snap a pic of your battery box and cross your fingers – just by helping properly recycle your batteries, you could WIN awesome prizes*!
Ready to enter?
Snap a pic of you with your collection box (remember: the more creative the box, the better) showing off how many batteries you found around the house, then grab a parent/guardian and fill out the form below!
