Ireland’s most famous puppet Bosco is flying the Donegal flag to encourage everyone in the county to recycle their waste portable batteries for the “Spread a Little Sunshine” campaign for LauraLynn.
In 2012, the people of Donegal recycled 310,350 batteries, which is the equivalent of 2 batteries per person in the county and every portable battery recycled by WEEE Ireland goes towards a monetary fund for LauraLynn.
Every battery counts when it comes to raising much needed funds for LauraLynn. Bosco and WEEE Ireland are urging people to recycle much more to help reach the recycling target and raise funds for LauraLynn. Simply look out for the blue WEEE Ireland battery boxes in retail outlets across the country and pop your waste batteries in them to make your donation.
CEO of LauraLynn, Philomena Dunne, said: “The battery-recycling fund, in one year alone, paid for 300 parent overnight stays and 300 music therapy sessions for children at LauraLynn receiving respite care with us.”
You can also bring batteries back for recycling to your local civic amenity site, or to a WEEE public collection day near you. Log on to recyclefree.ie for more details on where to recycle.
