Regular household batteries can be recycled at your local Recycling Centre and at most supermarkets or electrical stores. Find your nearest battery recycling point with Recycle Now’s recycling locator.

You can’t put batteries in any of your bins at home. This is because they are a fire risk and contain hazardous materials.

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.



Important information about building and DIY waste

Any waste produced by tradespeople or builders you hired to carry out improvements, repair or alterations to your home is classed as business waste and can’t be disposed of at any of our Recycling Centres. Always ask a tradesperson to include waste disposal in their quote. If you are recycling or disposing of business waste, visit the business waste page.
