Question to the Environment Minister regarding the recycling of lithium batteries and solar panels in Australia

My question is for the Minister for the Environment and Water. Minster, a renewable economy must be a circular economy. Solar panels, wind turbines and lithium batteries have an end of life, and we cannot afford to trade one environmental problem for another. According to the CSIRO, Australia is recycling only 10 per cent of its lithium batteries. What is the government doing to ensure solar panels and lithium batteries are recycled here in Australia?
