SAFE BATTERY DISPOSAL

Never dispose of batteries or objects containing batteries in the bin
Batteries power countless items in our everyday lives – from phones, tablets and laptops to toys, power tools and cars.
But there is a downside.
They contain toxic substances and you should NEVER dispose of used batteries, or objects containing batteries, in your waste or recycling bin.
They can start a fire in your bin, a collection truck or a recycling facility. If batteries reach landfill, they can pollute our environment – leaking contaminants into soil and groundwater.
