Battery Disposal/Re-Cycling

Finally, when a battery has reached the end-of-life it must be returned to the point of sale or to a licensed battery dealer for recycling. Please observe the following points.


Do not throw batteries in a bin at end-of-life. VRLA batteries contain substances harmful to the environment so return to your supplier or take to your Council tip for disposal.

Never bury in the ground or incinerate at end-of-life. Batteries contain harmful substances making this unsafe.


Either return 'spent' battery:
• to your stockist
• to your local council tip
• to a licensed 'spent' battery dealer
