Recycling for old batteries

Recycling is important for the environment

We do our part by separating office waste and switching to recyclables where possible, but we also want to support systemic changes.

That is why MacPaw joined the Batteries, Get In! project in their efforts to establish separate collection of old batteries in Ukraine.

As part of the project, companies can sponsor the collection and recycling of used batteries for schools and other educational institutions by setting up collection boxes. Each box can hold up to 10 kg of batteries and saves about 8 000 m2 of land from being polluted by harmful chemicals. After the box is filled, the contents are picked up and prepared to be shipped abroad for the recycling process.

MacPawCares Foundation has sponsored collection boxes for a school in Vyshneve, Kyiv region, for Kyiv Polytechnic Institute’s Computer Science Department, and for the Belka students space in Kyiv. We also have a collection box at the office and encourage macpawians to participate and give their old batteries a worthy afterlife.

Ten years ago very few people in the country knew that batteries were toxic, and nobody knew how to dispose of them properly. Now truckloads of old batteries are regularly shipped to the GreenWEEE plant in Romania, where they are sorted and recycled. And we are happy to be a part of this change!
