Recycling of Batteries and Accumulators
Recycling batteries is not on only good for the environment, it's also now the law. As a retailer of batteries in the UK, we're committed to doing what we can to ensure batteries are disposed of safely and with the least harm to the environment. In line with our social and legal responsibilities, we offer our customers and anyone who uses batteries three easy options to recycle. Depending on your location and the amount of used batteries that you have, you can choose from the following options. Whatever you choose, you can be assured that your used batteries will go to high tech recycling plants which sort, break down and recycle the various materials used during manufacturing.
Return To Us
You can bring your used batteries to our offices at: 46 Houghton Place, Bradford, West Yorkshire, BD1 3RG. We have battery disposal bins on-site. Please do not send your batteries to us by post. There are restrictions on which type of used batteries can be sent and NO used batteries can be sent by air. As most couriers including Royal Mail and Parcelforce cannot guarantee ground only transit, we cannot accept used batteries by post.
Drop at Recycling Bin/Point
BatteryStation.co.uk have partnered with the BatteryBack battery recycling compliance scheme. BatteryBack operate a network of used battery bins/points around the UK. There are currently 10,000 - 20,000 places to deposit used batteries for recycling. This list will grow to 30,000 by the end of 2010 and to 60,000 by the end of 2012.

Arrange a Pick Up

If you believe that you will frequently have large amounts of used batteries, we recommend that you keep a battery container.
