Recycle your electric car in Western Australia

Blogging about this not because of 98% of the article….. But because of the one or two sentences at the veerrrrrrrrry bottom of the blurb.

Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s great that WA is getting a slice of the lithium pie, I really do… but yeah, the fact that we throw away around 8,000 tons of it a year has got to stop.

Just to be clear, it’s not just electric cars, but laptop batteries, mobile phones, drones and, well, pretty much every gadget these days has a lithium battery powering it….. Don’t toss it, take it to a recycle center.

Mkay.

Thanks.
