Most household battery types can be dropped off at shops and supermarkets, or we offer a free weekly collection of batteries as part of your household recycling collection service.
These containers are for recycling the following battery types:
- Non-rechargeable batteries
- Re-chargeable (if they are no longer charging)
Order a bin, box or bag
Live on an estate?
Then leave your tied battery bag at your estate’s ‘bulky waste’ collection point. Call Veolia on 020 3567 8105 or ask your caretaker for more information.
If you are buying a new car battery they may take your old one for recycling. However you can recycle your car batteries at some garages and scrap metal facilities. Car batteries should be treated as hazardous waste and should not be thrown away in the normal household rubbish.
