Battery recycling

​​​​Don't throw batteries in the bin

In Jersey, we throw away more than 800,000 batteries​ each year.

Batteries shouldn't be thrown away with your general rubbish. Batteries contain metals and chemicals that can be recycled if you separate them and take them to a battery recycling bank.​​


Batteries that can be recycled

Most types of household batteries can be taken to a battery bank, including:

  • all AAA and AA cells
  • sizes C and D
  • button batteries (watch batteries)
  • mobile phone batteries
  • rechargeable batteries

Vehicle / wet cell batteries

Vehicle batteries (car, motorcycle) can't be recycled at the battery banks. Instead, they should be taken to the Household Reuse and Recycling Centre at La Collette.
