What you can't bring to our recycling centres

How to get rid of batteries

Each recycling centre has separate recycling containers for household batteries. 

Batteries should be removed from electrical appliances before you get rid of them. Where it is not possible to remove the battery from an electrical appliance, you should place it in the small electrical appliances (WEEE) recycling containers.
