Battery Collection Boxes Placed in All Buildings at HSE Nizhny Novgorod

In Nizhny Novgorod, battery collection boxes can be counted on the fingers of one hand. Today, thanks to the initiative shown by HSE students, there are four more boxes.

Did you know that one AA battery thrown in the trash could pollute about 20 square meters of land with heavy metals? In forest zones, this is the habitat of two trees, two moles, a hedgehog and a few thousand earthworms!

What should we do with used batteries? By the rules, they should be recycled at special plants. Such recycling is more expensive than the value of the raw materials derived during this process. Nevertheless, European countries still recycle batteries; there are battery collection boxes everywhere. In Russia, the only plant that recycles used batteries is located in Chelyabinsk. All the batteries collected from Nizhny Novgorod residents who care about the environment will be sent there.
