Council warns over battery blazes


BOROUGH Council chiefs are warning residents to be careful how they recycle batteries after a battery caused a fire in bin lorry for the second time in a year in Warrington.
The council is urging people to make sure they recycle batteries correctly and only put the correct items in the blue recycling bins.
Cheshire Fire and Rescue were called to fires in bin lorries in April and December last year.
In each case, a wrongly discarded battery was found to be the cause.
All Warrington’s community recycling centres will accept batteries for recycling; some libraries have battery collection boxes as do many shops that sell batteries.

The council is also asking people to take precautions against arson attacks on their bins after reports of a series of fires.
These fires can have very serious consequences and the council says residents should store bins away to avoid them becoming a target for arsonists and only place them out on collection days.
