Due to an increase in the theft of batteries The Rural Crime Action Team and Countryside Watch are encouraging farmers and rural businesses to try and reduce the risk of battery theft by Painting them PINK with their post code and company name. RCAT have started visiting scrap yards, not only in this county, but in neighbouring counties telling them that if they accept a pink battery they must have specific proof of ownership.
PAINT IT PINK
Reduce the risk of your batteries being stolen – paint them PINK.
Mark them with your post code and or company name, then spray each side.
RCAT will be informing Scrap Metal yards and Recycling Centres that anyone weighing in batteries painted PINK must have specific proof of ownership. Support the campaign by painting your batteries pink, and do not accept batteries you suspect may be stolen.
