Stay compliant and environmentally responsible with our Battery Recycling Bins. Shops that sell batteries are legally required to provide safe storage solutions for used batteries in public areas. These bins are essential in locations like schools, shopping centres, workshops, offices, and other business premises where used batteries are disposed of. Our range offers plenty of choice when it comes to size, colour, and type and will ensure you are meeting your legal obligations.
These bins come in various sizes, from compact 3-litre options suitable for small businesses to more extensive 52-litre models for high-traffic areas. No matter the size, each bin helps to make battery recycling and sorting efficient and easy.
Choosing our Battery Recycling Bins means you're not just fulfilling a legal obligation; you're actively contributing to a cleaner, greener future. Make the responsible choice for your business and the environment by incorporating our battery bins into your waste management strategy.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I put batteries in my normal bin?
Unfortunately not, batteries contain hazardous materials and are a huge fire risk. Simply pop your used batteries into a bag and take them with you on your next shopping trip. All major supermarkets will have a battery recycling bin at the front of the store.
Does my business require a battery bin?
There is no legal requirement to recycle batteries, unless you sell more than 32kg of batteries per year. This roughly equals 4 AA batteries per day for a full year. If you sell this amount then you need to have a battery recycling point and accept all batteries. Not just the ones you sell.
Failure to do so could lead to a £5000 fine.
We supply battery recycling bins from 3 litres all the way to 52 litres and our team can help you choose a battery recycling point that is suitable to your business.
