September 6, 2015  BRISBANE dads will be able to safely dispose of their old power tool batteries in hardware stores under a new recycling program.

ENVIRONMENT Minister Steven Miles says special battery bins will be placed in Bunnings, Masters and Trade Tool stores in the city until next June.

“If you’ve bought your dad a power tool this Father’s Day make sure to tell him he can turn in his old battery. It will save clutter in the shed and save the environment at the same time,” Dr Miles said in a statement.
