National Battery and Pen Recycling Program Launched

A national battery and pen recycling program has been launched in Officeworks stores in Australia.

On October 5, Assistant Minister for Waste Reduction and Environmental Management Trevor Evans launched the scheme while at the Osborne Park store in Perth, Western Australia.

“Australians can now recycle their batteries, pens and markers at Officeworks, in addition to e-waste, computers and accessories, ink and toner cartridges and mobile phones. It is another step forward in Australia transitioning towards a more circular economy, in which we recognise the value of our waste resources and reduce the amount of waste going to landfill,” Evans said.
