Small household batteries, including button-sized, AA, AAA, C, D and 9V batteries (both rechargeable and non-rechargeable), are accepted in our Recycling Hubs.
Please don’t place batteries in your bins at home. If collected through kerbside services, batteries can cause serious safety issues, including fires and explosions. Batteries that end up in landfill leach toxic chemicals into the ground, contaminating soil and water. These chemicals can cause significant environmental and health issues.
