Where can I take my batteries?

Where can I take my batteries?

BSC is in the process of establishing an accreditation regime to ensure batteries are safely and responsibly collected and recycled. That system is planned to be rolled out in the second half of 2021. In the mean-time, a number of our members offer collection facilities at some of their sites although they are not currently accredited by us, but which have established collection and recycling arrangements with members of the Australian Battery Recycling Initiative (ABRI).

Because we are in the development phase of the Scheme, there are a number of other companies legitimately collecting batteries that are not yet covered by this Scheme. You may wish to ask them to confirm where your batteries are being disposed of once you drop them off and how and where they are being recycled.

Visit the ABRI website to find battery recyclers near you:


Alternatively you can access local drop-off options for battery recycling via the Planet Ark website:

or go to:
At this site you must enter your post-code, select electronic equipment as the category and then choose the type of batteries you wish to recycle.
