How to dispose of batteries in the UK

Unfortunately, over 20,000 tonnes of batteries make their way to landfill every year, where they corrode and leach toxic chemicals into the environment.

As users don't know how to dispose of batteries, these toxins are absorbed into the soil and end up infiltrating our water supply, endangering wildlife and humans.
