Household battery collections

A vast amount of single use batteries are often discarded in the general waste bin, which sees them end up in landfill or at an energy waste facility.

This can cause long-lasting, damaging effects to the climate, as chemicals including:

  • Lead
  • Cadmium
  • Zinc
  • Lithium 
  • Mercury

From 22 March 2021 residents are able to present household batteries for recycling along with their household waste collection.

How we will collect

Residents should  put their dead batteries in a tied plastic bag and place this on top of their grey bin for the usual fortnightly collection date.
