Over 1.5m batteries recycled for charity
County Wexford people recycled over one and a half million batteries to raise money for a children's charity. The recycling body WEEE Ireland teamed up with Bosco for Spread a Little Sunshine campaign last year and collected 25 million batteries nationwide.
A total of 1,509,550 batteries came from Wexford through recycling efforts in shops, offices and schools. WEEE Ireland donated €90,000 to the LauraLynn Children's Hospice based on the response.
