Batteries for Barretstown

European Recycling Platform (ERP) Ireland

European Recycling Platform (ERP) Ireland is powering positivity at Barretstown in a new three-year initiative, ‘Batteries for Barretstown,’ aimed at increasing awareness of battery recycling and raising much-needed funds for Barretstown.

Batteries can be recycled free of charge in any retail store selling batteries, in schools, libraries, civic amenity sites at a recycling centre or at one of ERP’s free recycling events held across the country and all batteries collected will contribute towards a donation fund that aims to raise €120,000 for Barretstown over the next 3 years.

‘Batteries for Barretstown’ will run in ERP’s 8 counties (Louth, Meath, Monaghan, Dublin Fingal, Limerick, Cavan, Clare, and Kerry), with promotional battery collection points in local authority recycling centres, schools and retailers.

Speaking about the partnership, CEO of ERP, Martin Tobin said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Barretstown on the ‘Batteries for Barretstown’, Powering Positivity initiative. The message in this campaign is a hugely positive one, which we hope will drive people to dispose of their waste batteries in an environmentally conscious way, whilst raising funds for a worthy children’s charity.

Barretstown’s CEO Dee Ahearn said: “This campaign is a very exciting project for us and we are thrilled to be involved in helping to motivate people to become more environmentally aware and to change their battery recycling habits. The commitment to Powering Positivity at Barretstown, is enormously important to us in providing facilities for our campers and for their families, and we are very excited about the positive energy being generated by the campaign.”
