Caversham GLOBE has arranged with three local retailers to operate a used battery collection scheme. This will encourage residents to recycle household batteries, classified as hazardous waste, as well as reduce risks to landfill sites. Caversham GLOBE has provided containers and posters for the three sites at:
* Caversham Cobbler and Key Smith, 12 Bridge Street (Caversham Bridge).
* V & I Hardware, Emmer Green (Cavendish Rd – top of Milestone Way)
* Woodcote Way Post Office & Stores, Caversham Heights.
A volunteer from GLOBE will periodically empty the containers and take the batteries to Council recycling facilities. Residents are urged to use these new facilities. New sites are being sought.
