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.



Due to essential maintenance, the weighbridge at Cobden Street in Salford will be closed from Monday 18th March.

If you are disposing of business waste, asbestos, plasterboard or are using a vehicle over 2 metres you can use other facilities at Longley Lane, Manchester or Raikes Lane, Bolton.

The Recycling Centre for household waste and recycling is open as normal.
