450 new containers for recycling of batteries in the Balearic Islands
Thanks to the awareness campaign run by the Regional Government, ERP Spain and Ecopilas
The awareness campaign conducted by the Regional Government of the Environment and Territory, ERP Spain and Ecopilas has encouraged businesses on the Balearic Islands to request 450 new recycling containers, which will allow us to expand battery collection capacity in the region.
This is one of the principal results presented this Thursday at the Webinar ‘Campanya pel foment del reciclatge de les piles i bateries a les Illes Balears ’. This initiative, in which ERP Spain participates, has visited 1,025 business across the islands in a year, where surveys were carried out on the management of batteries and citizens’ use of containers.
69.2% of the outlets participating in the collection system assure us that they received weekly visits from customers to drop off batteries. This campaign also fosters citizen awareness through information tables and environmental education activities, mainly aimed at children.
