Battery collection

We can now collect small household batteries alongside your kerbside recycling collection every fortnight.  These should be presented in a sealed clear sandwich bag, on top of your blue-lidded recycling bin or beside your blue recycling sack. Your collection days can be viewed on our online calendar (opens new window).

To ensure minimal use of plastic bags, please ensure you store batteries until you have enough to fill a sandwich bag, making sure it can be securely closed. Place top on your blue-lidded bin or beside your blue recycling sack so that the collection crew can see them, and never in the bin. Do not place one or two batteries out for collection as there is a risk the bag could blow away.
