Morrisons launches Bradford BatteryCan trial

Posted on 15th August, 2008

Morrisons has been quick to recognise the need to offer its customers an environmentally friendly way to dispose of their used batteries.

With the introduction of the Battery Recycling Regulations only months away, Morrisons, a major retailer of batteries, is providing a simple solution, which is currently being trialled in the Bradford area.

The plan involves offering free disposal for all types of portable battery. At the same time, Bradford Metropolitan District Council is to provide a similar BatteryCan collection service to schools and public buildings throughout the district to coincide with the Morrisons store trials. To encourage schools it is planned that those collecting the most batteries per pupil, will be offered laptop computers.
