“Although most batteries have always been recyclable, up to 90% of them have been thrown out and contaminating the environment for decades. Many still have some charge, and they can spark against other metals and cause fires.” - energy.gov.au

“Clean, expanded polystyrene can be 100% recycled.” - Foamex
