More battery information

Why can't batteries be incinerated?

Batteries contain heavy metals and potentially dangerous chemicals that should not be incinerated. 

What happens to batteries when I recycle them?

The batteries are taken to a UK recycling centre. They are sorted based on their chemical content and reprocessed to produce other products, or even new batteries.

What else can I do?

Reduce your use of batteries by:

  • using rechargeable batteries wherever possible - you can even buy a solar powered recharger
  • plugging electrical equipment into the mains electricity
  • trying to buy appliances that use renewable energy eg a wind-up radio or torch, dynamo bicycle lights or a solar powered calculator
