Never Bin Your Batteries

Batteries are incredibly useful, but most used batteries go to landfill, or worse, are dumped.

This creates a fire and health hazard, leaks materials into the environment, and wastes finite valuable resources.

Demand for battery materials is estimated to jump 500% by 2050, yet 63% of Australians are inappropriately throwing used batteries into household rubbish or recycling bins.

Throughout March, Council, in partnership with B-cycle, Australia's official battery recycling scheme, will be doing our best to help Hinchinbrook recycle right and keep used batteries out of the bin.

Remember these three simple steps to help protect the planet and your loved ones.

  1. Don’t toss them – keep them out of general waste and recycling bins;
  2. Tape them - tape terminals with clear sticky tape; and
  3. Take them – head to bcycle.com.au and enter your postcode to find your nearest B-cycle drop-off point in Hinchinbrook.

The Alphabet of Awesome Science

The JL Kelly Theatre presents The Alphabet of Awesome Science.

A scientific race through the alphabet — where awesome words inspire awesome science.

Join professors Lexi Con and Noel Edge (the word nerd and the science freak) for a thrilling voyage through the alphabet — where sesquipedalian words inspire mind-blowing scientific surprises!

It's a tongue-twisting race from A to Z that's equal parts explosive, messy, hilarious, fascinating and gross.

Brace yourself for an hour of carefully crafted alphabetical, scientifical (award-winning!) chaos — that floats, flies, squirts, sprays, ignites and erupts!

Time:   10.00am and 1.00pm

Where: JL Kelly Theatre
