Abstract
The aim of this study was to determine the opinions of students studying Science Teaching in Turkey regarding the recycling and disposal of waste batteries. A total of 80 volunteer, third-year students from the department of science education participated in the study. Based on the study results, it was determined that the large majority of the students had insufficient knowledge regarding the recycling and disposal of waste batteries. To change the students’ views that waste batteries can be converted into batteries once again by being processing in factories, or that waste batteries can be disposed of through melting, it is necessary to increase the students’ knowledge and awareness on this subject.
