What do I do with household batteries?


You can recycle household batteries using the appropriate container for your recycling and waste collections service or at a Recycling and Waste Park:

Trolibocs service

Bag service

Communal bin service


Try to use rechargeable batteries where possible.

Batteries are harmful to the environment and must be recycled by specialist companies. All large electrical retailers and supermarkets are obliged by law to provide free recycling facilities. Please take them with you when you travel to these outlets to dispose of them safely.

You can search for your nearest recycling facilities at RecycleNow (external website).
