A bag to collect batteries and be collected a part of bin service

We the undersigned petition the council to provide a bag for old batteries, to be collected as part of the recycling service. Do you wonder what happens to batteries that do not get the right treatment they deserve. By this I mean that if we don’t recycle used batteries we no longer need or are no longer working, we decide to throw them straight in the black bin. If you look on Veolia Twitter page, it instructs us that throwing batteries in the general waste (black bin) or recycling bin can cause a fire, causing a hazard for Veolia’s crew.

If you think about it the transport we are going to use in the future will rely on batteries. So if we don’t recycle the batteries we use, the only thing we are doing is damaging the environment and wasting more valuable Earth resources.

So I am asking for Sheffield Council to collect batteries as part of bin service so all households can recycle batteries, just like what other councils have started doing in the UK.
