Guys. I just realised that I need to buy new batteries for my remote control car! Can you guys come with me to the store after school?
Sure. I can come with you.
What, flip them into the garbage can, what else?
Hey Ella. Here is a tricky question, what are you going to do with your old batteries?
As your teacher, I am really disappointed
No, Ella you are supposed discard the battery safely so that other people are not affected by the poisonous chemicals that it contains.
What, I didn't know about that?
Ella that is common sense. By this so many people are affected when it batteries are incorrectly disposed? Use the process called "battery recycling".
This process is nothing but batteries being carefully recycled into a useful products. It is just a way to prevent water and soil pollution if the chemicals in the batteries leak into grounds or water bodies. In fact, if these essentials are polluted, it affects humans and the environment.
What does "battery recycling" even mean and what are its benefits? I mean why should I even care about this "process"?
100% correct Jim. Giving a personal example, my friend used to work at a factory before and he got exposed to lead and lead (IV) oxide which is a harmful chemical solution that accommodates concentrated sulfuric acid. Where is he now, you may ask? Well, he recently got admitted to the hospital because that caused him to have nervous and heart problems.
