Are you heading to the National Ploughing Championships 2017?

September 19th, 2017

ERP Ireland is delighted to be invited to attend the National Ploughing Championships 2017 to promote our ‘#Batteries4Barretstown’ campaign.

If you happen to be at the Ploughing, go see Buzz, the battery man at the Lidl Ireland kids area or in the Retail space. He is reminding attendees to recycle their batteries in Lidl for Barretstown and providing a perfect photo-opportunity for attendees with children. Take a photo with Buzz and use #Batteries4Barretstown to enter into our competition and to win a family pass to Dublin Zoo!

The aim of Batteries for Barretstown is to drive people to dispose of their waste batteries in an environmentally conscious way, to motivate people to become more environmentally aware and to change recycling habits, whilst raising funds for a worthy children’s charity.

Each year in Ireland thousands of batteries are disposed of in standard domestic waste, and Batteries for Barretstown hopes to raise awareness of the ease by which Batteries can be recycled by facilitating collection in local Lidl stores.  Batteries can also be recycled free of charge in any retail stores selling batteries, at local recycling centres or at one of ERP’s free recycling events held across the country.

The Competition winner will be announced on Friday 22nd September 2017. See Terms and Conditions below.
