The Waste Battery Collection Campaign, which is carried out with the Environment Week under the leadership of İzmir Metropolitan Municipality and turns into an exciting race between schools every year, started with colorful images. IZELMAN Kindergarten students called for a clean world with dance and music performances.
The excitement started in the 'Waste Battery Collection' campaign organized by the Izmir Metropolitan Municipality in cooperation with the Portable Battery Manufacturers and Importers Association (TAP) and the district municipalities, where a new record was broken every year. It has been reported that environmental friends who want to participate in the campaign can throw the used batteries they collect throughout the year into the money boxes at the booth at the entrance door of the Izmir Metropolitan Municipality until the evening of May 30th. Collected waste batteries will be evaluated in 8 categories as children, youth, adults, kindergartens, schools, mukhtars, district municipalities and Bizim Ev Family Child Youth Support Center. Those who collect the highest amount of waste batteries as a result of the weighing will receive their awards at a ceremony to be held at the Historical Gas Factory on June 12. Environmental friends will win awards such as notebook, tablet computer, desktop computer, table tennis table and set, sports set, chess set, smart board, printer.
Yıldız Devran, Deputy Secretary General of İzmir Metropolitan Municipality, who pointed out to the protection of the environment and nature during these periods when the effects of climate change are experienced, said ına The most important thing we can do about this is to educate our children and young people. Heavy metals in waste batteries can pollute the earth and tons of water for hundreds of miles. In time, it threatens the lives of all of us. If our children and young people didn't support this much, we wouldn't be able to continue this work. Therefore, I would like to thank again for the sensitivity of the people of Izmir. We can buy toys that do not use battery-powered appliances to our children, we can use rechargeable instruments as adults in.
Little students of İZELMAN Kindergartens added color to the ceremony organized due to the start of the campaign with their shows.
