Batteries

What?

Household batteries of any size including battery packs from electrical items are suitable for recycling.

Where?

Batteries should be brought to a WEEE dropoff recycling point or to a Civic Amenity Site.

Check the Waste Services Locator on this site for further details.

Why?

When you recycle anything with a plug or a battery you are helping to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill.

Batteries generally contain hazardous components and therefore need to be disposed of correctly.

General Comment / Tip

Most supermarkets will have battery boxes where you can leave your used batteries for free.

If you use a lot of batteries why not try using rechargeable ones instead.
