A problem with Camera Batteries Everywhere

A problem with Camera Batteries Everywhere

People leaving their old camera batteries at Parks, Beaches, where children and wildlife can ingest them, also contaminating natural waterways.


Barry's Response - Disgusting, Gerry. I like it.

How 'bout it, peeps. Let's say we find a better way to dispose of these things.

No place to run, no place to hide

Great question (see below) - I still have them. My main interest was to remove them from harm's way. I find them on the beach and in the water, where people take pictures and where children play. I must admit, in the past I would put them in a dumpster, which I'm sure went to a land fill.

I think all is bad, but where a baby or a fish could ingest or get sick from leakage was my main care. It is like the thousands of cigarette butts that I'm picking up from the beach, ocean, parks. I remove them from where unknowing children & wildlife could and do ingest, such as natural waterways, and I pray to Buddha and God that the garbage pick up does not dump them back into the ocean.

This is Thailand; I am a voice for the voiceless. I go to City Hall quite often, Talking to the Mayor Itthiphol Kunplome of Pattaya City, Deputy Chief Apichart Administrator Pattaya City and many others. I also put posters up in Thai and English, informing people on hazards of leaving butts and rubbish behind. Try to leave only foot prints behind.

This might give you an idea of what I and others are doing our best to do
