The Australian Council of Recycling (ACOR) shared an urgent notice on Friday 21 June 2024, calling for urgent action regarding battery fires.

Research outlining the dangers caused by electronic items thrown away in conventional waste or recycling streams has shown that batteries, both loose and embedded in electronic items, are causing around 30 fires per day across Australia’s recycling and waste facilities, injuring workers, destroying infrastructure and pushing up costs.
