Batteries

You can take batteries to a Recycling Centre.

Regular household batteries can also be recycled at most supermarkets or electrical stores.

Keep your bin crew safe

Please do not throw any batteries in any of your wheelie bins at home. This is because they are a fire risk and contain hazardous materials.

Choose to reuse

When next replacing batteries, why not buy rechargeable batteries instead? You can use them again and again, which will save you money and help you waste less.
