Dispose of Household Batteries | Community Recycling Centre
Batteries contain a range of metals that can be hazardous to the environment when disposed of incorrectly. For example, lithium-ion batteries can cause self-sustaining fires when damaged.
To help prevent fires, it is important to tape up the battery terminals before recycling them. This can be done with any non-conductive tape, such as clear sticky tape.
Batteries cannot be placed in your kerbside collection bins. Instead, you can recycle them at the Community Recycling Centre or at other community battery drop-off locations.
