Recycle Batteries

Considering the composition of batteries, it is surprising that battery recycling has taken so long to become 'mainstream'.

Battery recycling is important.
Batteries you can take back to a store: any type of sealed battery that can be carried without difficulty by an average person.
This includes (but is not limited to) AA, AAA and 9v batteries, rechargeable batteries and batteries from:
mobile phones, laptops, hearing aids, watches, portable cameras, torches, electric toothbrushes, razors, hand-held vacuum cleaners.
You can not take back car and motorbike batteries or batteries from industrial equipment.
Sellers take back responsibilities

Now that battery recycling has taken on more importance, it is much easier to recycle batteries, and there is no excuse for throwing batteries away with general rubbish to end up in landfill.

Another point to bear in mind is that where a lot of batteries are used, choosing rechargeable batteries instead of none rechargeable batteries will mean less battery recycling.
