Recycling Batteries

Many batteries in the UK end up in Landfill at the end of their useful life, this is both damaging to the environment by exposing the ground to chemicals as the cells breakdown in the soil and a waste of a resource that could be recycled. The UK as part of the EU has a requirement to minimise this waste and has recycling partners in other countries that specialise in one type or another and together we can all help protect our world.

Where to recycle

Most Supermarkets and other stores that sell batteries along with some petrol stations , libraries, schools and other council building's will now take in portable batteries for recycling. Look out for the "Be postive Logo".
