Where can I dispose of used batteries responsibly in the local area?

Places that sell batteries such as the big supermarkets could have a recycling program surely?

  • If you live in the Waverley Council area you can take them to our Customer Service Centre at 55 Spring St Bondi Junction.

    Please note, this includes normal household batteries, rechargeable batteries, lithium and carbon zinc batteries only.

    It does not include car batteries or batteries used by a business or commercial enterprise.

    You can take car batteries to Chemical Cleanout. Click this link for information, dates and locations: http://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/households/cleanoutguide.htm>

  • Sydney City Council just introduced 10 new battery recycling stations around Sydney! Including Glebe Community Service Centre, Surry Hills Library and Customs House.

    The problem is that not many people voluntarily store and recycle their used batteries. They can just seem so small and insignificant. I believe producers and retailers should take responsibility for the recycling process; providing free services to their customs to ensure their products are sustainable.
