Introducing Battery Recycling at McIlwain!

It’s National Recycling Week and this year McIlwain have introduced another recycling initiative for our all our staff to get involved in! 

As part of McIlwain’s commitment to conducting all operations in a manner that protects the environment and minimises any adverse impacts, Mcilwain have partnered with Ecocycle, a battery recycling company involved in the collection and recycling of all types of batteries. We now have our Ecobatt recycling bins accessible from Head Office and major project sites. 
In 2019, Australians purchased enough AA-equivalent batteries to stretch around the earth 2.3 times and less than 5% are recycled! This means that most are being dumped into landfill where batteries can leak and release a range of toxic substances, including lead, mercury and cadmium, into the environment.
Let’s all do our part and recycle our batteries!
