Disposal of batteries

A court has ordered the destruction of 3,200 mobile phones, 128,800 covers, 68,000 phone batteries and 9,000 chargers, which would normally have been dumped in a field ­– well done!

Yet again, however, I would like to draw attention to the 68,000 pieces of batteries shredded with all toxic liquids that can end up either in the water table or else leak to the sea.

What I suggest is that all material shredded should be sent back to the country of origin since Malta should not be expected to be anybody’s rubbish dump.
