One thought on “Register Now for the 2018 Zero Waste Conference

  1. I always say that knowledge is “power”. Knowing is better than not even though it may be bad or uncomfortable for others. My quick story. I was born in Kenya, Africa. I came to Canada in 1972. My father is a hardworking man and provided very well for me and my family. My parents are retired now. I talk very often with my parents now. A conversation with my dad was very interesting and related to recycling and that is the point here. In Kenya back then they would refurbish dead acid lead batteries and thus not throw them out (Less fortunate countries have to be more innovative with what they have.). Older batteries were not sealed units. Battery cell voltage and specific gravity of the acid solution could be tested. If a dead battery cell was located then it could be replaced by a used cell from another battery. There was no waste and no total recycling. This was refurbished and re-use. Today most acid lead batteries are sealed units and it makes it harder to recondition them, but not impossible. What if I told your readership that 90% of batteries could be brought back to life, not recycled but reconditioned and re-used. Would this make more sense than recycling? You would use technology and it works! I found the knowledge and training for this so that anyone can use it to recondition acid lead batteries, deep cycle acid lead batteries and solid chemical batteries. Save the landfills, save the energy of recycling and save the environment. Go here to find out more.
