Car batteries

Recycle at home

Car batteries are classed as hazardous waste and, by law, must not be disposed of with household waste.

Sometimes the specialist who replaces your battery will be able to dispose of the old one safely for you. They are collected at garages, scrap metal facilities and many Recycling Centres -  find your nearest hazardous waste disposal service or recycling facility for car batteries below.
