Hi There,

I have a pile of old alkaline batteries, I've heard that you shouldn't throw them in the rubbish because of the chemicals they leak in landfill – where should I take these old batteries?

I also have old rechargeable batteries (ni-cad and ni-mh) – is there somewhere that they can be recycled?

where should I take these old batteries?

Hi there,

I've answered this question in response to another forum post, so here it is again:

You can drop off batteries, including alkaline and rechargable batteries, to Battery World. For small numbers of batteries they don't charge a fee but if they receive business-scale amounts of batteries for recycling they charge a fee of $5 per kilo.

Their address is 95 Grenville Court, Phillip, in Canberra, and phone number is 131760.

Battery World can also supply you with this cute toy sized wheelie bins to stire you batteries in. When the bin is full you just take it into battery world and they recycle them. It makes recycling batteries easy as you are not tempted to throw them in the normal garbage!
