Battery Recycling Compliance

The Waste Batteries and Accumulators Regulations 2000

This directive set out a number of targets that were designed to encourage the collection and recycling of waste batteries of all types. The aim of this was to provide greater environmental protection and prevention of heavy metal pollution caused by waste batteries.

Which types of batteries can I recycle?

To protect our future, we should all be recycling our batteries – below is a list of many but not all of the different types of battery that can be recycled:

  • Non-rechargeable household batteries. AAA, AA, 9V, C and D zinc carbon, zinc chloride and alkaline manganese. These are used in many devices such as TV remote controls, clocks, shavers, cameras – probably the most common group of batteries used by all of us on a daily basis.
  • Non-rechargeable button cells. There are many different sizes of button cells using zinc air, silver oxide, lithium (many different chemistries), mercuric oxide – often used in watches, calculators, cameras, hearing aids and games consoles.
  • Rechargeable batteries. Again there are many different sizes and applications of rechargeable batteries using nickel cadmium, nickel metal hydride and lithium ion – often used in power tools, laptop batteries, emergency lighting, video cameras and mobile phones.
  • Industrial batteries. These are supplied in sizes from the very small to the very large and can be wet cell lead acid, valve regulated lead acid, gel and AGM – used in alarm panels, small and large UPS installations, cars, lorries, caravans and fork lift trucks.

In early 2010 all retailers selling more than 32Kg of batteries are required to provide a free in-store collection point for waste batteries.

Local authority recycling centres will offer a recycling services for batteries as well more information on how you can safely do this. Alternatively you for more information you can visit dedicated recycling website such as Recyclingnow.com.

If you have any queries about recycling your old batteries please call us on 017474 61051

Where should I take them for recycling?

Please do not put batteries in your domestic waste bin as they will not be recycled. Most consumer batteries can be recycled free of charge at your local tip or recycling centre – check with your local council for details.

We are obliged to take back free of charge, waste industrial batteries and portable batteries supplied to an end user for treatment and recycling. We are required to do this in any calendar year we place new industrial batteries on the market. If any of our customers or in certain cases other end users, require us to take back industrial batteries, they should contact us by email at [email protected] or call us on 014747 61051

Waste batteries should be returned to:
