How our Batteries Recycling service works
The batteries recycling box is collected from inside your business by a uniformed delivery driver.
Items are taken to a specialist battery recycling company who use chemical baths and electrodes to extract chemicals from the batteries.
Metals such as mercury, zinc and lead are recovered and recycled back into new products e.g. new batteries and lighting.
Unfortunately, over 20,000 tonnes of batteries make their way to landfill every year, where they corrode and leach toxic chemicals into the environment. These toxins are absorbed into the soil and end up infiltrating our water supply, endangering wildlife and humans.
Make sure your batteries aren’t led astray with our quick and easy battery recycling service. All you need to do is pop your used batteries in one of our handy sacks or bins and our battery disposal team will pick them up.
When you recycle batteries with us, they are taken to a specialist company who use chemical baths and electrodes to extract chemicals from them. Then, metals such as mercury, zinc and lead are recovered and turned into new products such as batteries and lighting. Win, win!
