Battery recycling collections

BatteriesYou can recycle household batteries, using our weekly collection service.

You just need to put your old household batteries in a clear plastic bag - like a sandwich bag.

Then put them on top of your blue lid recycling bin on your normal collection day.

The following batteries can be recycled:

  • AA and AAA batteries (commonly used in TV remote controls, cameras)
  • 6V and 9V batteries
  • C and D batteries
  • Laptop batteries
  • Mobile phone and MP3 player batteries
  • Button batteries
  • Hearing aid batteries

No car or industrial batteries please.

Please note that since the battery recycling laws came into force in February 2010, most shops and supermarkets that sell batteries have collection bins in-store for used batteries.

You can also recycle them, along with car or industrial batteries should be taken to the Household Recycling Centre in Oldbury.
