 Editors Note: We should have our own 2020 summit in Machans. We're an opinionated lot. What ideas do you have for either our
 local community, the Cairns region, or indeed the world at large? Do you have ideas about the rock wall, activities for teenagers, or
 sensible usage of fossil fuels, etc? Ideas can only become a reality if they are shared. We want to know what your vision of the future
 is and more importantly, that you will share it with us. Leave a note at the PO or email Machanations.
 C'mon Machanites, there are a few thinkers out there. We want your 2020 vision .250 words approximately please.

                             BATTERY RECYCLING PROGRAM
     Machans Beach School and Battery World are working together on a battery recycling program which supports the school’s
                                             environmental education program.
                                        Have you got flat batteries at home?
   Please bring these, or have your child bring these to the school and place them in our Big Purple Bin
                            which is located outside the office during the week.
 We hope all the Machans community will be interested in supporting this easy and effective program.
 Did you know that 8000 tonnes of batteries are going into landfill each year?
 Most batteries contain heavy metals which are the main cause for environmental concern. Disposed of incorrectly, the heavy metals
may leak into the ground when the battery erodes. This contributes to soil and water pollution and endangers wildlife. Some
components in batteries can be toxic to fish and make them unfit for human consumption. The collected phone handsets, batteries and
accessories are recycled under contract by MRI Australia. The recycling process prevents the reformation of environmentally
damaging compounds such as dioxins and furans in the exhaust gas stream. It provides a complete breakdown of chemical
compounds and is suitable for all phones and batteries including the newer Lithium Ion and Lithium Polymer types.
 Battery World Cairns will install, maintain and clear this station free of charge. There will be a prize for the school with the most
batteries collected by weight per capita each quarter.
   Automotive batteries are not permitted in the collection station. Battery World can collect these from residences but will not be
                                                    included in the school’s weight.
