Batteries Recyling Hotline No PA

There are a wide range of battery types, many of which contain toxic metals such as cadmium, mercury and lead. Others contain valuable materials like magnesium and zinc. Used rechargeable batteries are a hazardous waste and should not be placed in the garbage bin. This includes batteries in laptops, mobile phones, power tools and cameras.

Aldi supermarkets offer a free battery recycling service at all their Australian stores. Any brand of AA, AAA, C, D and 9V batteries (both rechargeable and non-rechargeable) are accepted - simply drop your used batteries into the dedicated bins in store. For other services and for options for different battery types (eg buttons and 12 volts) see below.

If your workplace or business has large quantities of batteries to recycle, visit BusinessRecycling.com.au to find suitable collection or pick up service options.

Other Battery Recycling Programs

Some waste management companies run nationwide programs that recycle all types of batteries (except motor vehicle batteries). Flat-packed boxes are posted out to your location and full boxes sent back for recycling with an administration fee. To find out more visit Transpacific-Cleanaway or SITA.

Mobile Phone Batteries are accepted in the programs above and with mobile phones and other accessories in the MobileMuster program. See the Baw Baw Shire Council mobile phone recycling page.

Computer Batteries are accepted in the Battery World, Transpacific-Cleanaway and SITA programs above, and with computers and other accessories in various computer recycling or re-use programs. See the Baw Baw Shire Council computer recycling page for further details.

Motor Vehicle Batteries are recycled through a national network of Battery Recycling Centres established by Century Yuasa, and at many garages, transfer stations and waste management centres. See if there is a drop off location or visit the Baw Baw Shire Council motor vehicle battery recycling page for other listings.

About Batteries

Single-use batteries are usually alkaline batteries with Zinc, Manganese or Lithium chemistry. Rechargeable batteries are commonly Nickel Cadmium, Nickel Metal Hydride or Lithium Ion. Rechargeable batteries are found in the same shapes and voltage as single-use batteries, as well as specifically designed for laptops, mobile phones and electronic equipment.

How to reduce your battery waste

Try to minimise battery usage by connecting appliances to the mains power where possible. Buying rechargeable batteries is an important way to reduce battery waste. Each battery can be recharged up to 1000 times, saving you money and reducing pollution from discarded batteries.

There are many retailers who sell battery rechargers, which conveniently take less than 15 minutes to recharge.

More information

Batteries can be processed to recover plastics and metals, some of which are used to manufacture new batteries.

See Planet Ark's Battery Recycling Factsheet for further information on battery composition and recycling.

The Australian Battery Recycling Initiative (ABRI) is an industry and community working group, established to investigate a coordinated national collection and recycling scheme for batteries.

See the Rechargeable Batteryback page for information about a trial rechargeable battery recycling program running in Toowoomba until 5th September 2016.
