Car Batteries Recycling Hotline

Used car batteries, as well as other used lead-acid batteries are hazardous waste and should be disposed of appropriately through recycling programs. Lead-acid batteries also include batteries in motorcycles, boats, emergency lighting and air conditioners.

A national network of Battery Recycling Centres has been established by Century Yuasa for environmentally responsible collection and recycling of used lead-acid batteries.

Most car workshops, scrap metal dealers and service stations will accept used car batteries for recycling. Check with your car battery vendor when purchasing a new battery.

Some states and councils provide Household Hazardous Waste or Chemical Collection programs that take used lead acid batteries for recycling.

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

The RACV offers an annual collection of used car batteries. To find out more visit racv.com.au

About Car Batteries

  • Used car batteries and other lead acid batteries contain lead, lead compounds, and/or sulphuric acid, all of which are hazardous. Seventy thousand tonnes of lead-acid batteries are finished with each year, and they are 98% recyclable.

Importance of Recycling Car Batteries

  • Each car battery contains around 2-3 litres of sulfuric acid, as well as lead, and lead compounds, all of which are toxic.
  • Car batteries can be re-conditioned or recycled into new products made from the lead, sulphuric acid and polypropylene. Recycling of these batteries uses less energy than refining primary ore and removes lead from the environment.
  • Car Batteries can be recycled into a range of products from plant pots, to laundry detergents and new batteries.
