Battery Recycling

Batteries require specific attention for recycling and you cannot simply throw them out with your household rubbish. Some councils collect as part of your kerbside service but in most areas you will need to take them to a recycling centre or a collection point.

From February 2010, shops selling more than 32kg of batteries a year (approx 345 x four-packs of AA batteries) will have to provide battery recycling collection facilities in-store. This means there will be lots more places where you can take your old batteries for recycling.

Under the Waste Battery Regulations, we are now offering a take back scheme for all portable waste batteries. We will accept the return of your waste batteries at our head office. Alternatively, you can find your local waste portable battery recycling facility at Most Supermarkets and shops that sell batteries will have collection bins for used batteries, and some town halls, schools or libraries may also set up collection points. End users may find stores in their local area more accessible.

Please do not return your used batteries to us via mail.
