Did you know around 600 million UK batteries - weighing the equivalent to 110 jumbo jets - are sent to landfill unneccessarily each year? As each household uses on average 21 batteries a year, Bournemouth residents throw away around 1.6 million batteries annually.
You can now recycle your household batteries at collection drop-off points around the town. Any battery of between 1.5 and 9 volts can be dropped into the containers where they will be collected free of charge by recycling contractor BatteryBack| and taken for recycling rather than ending up in landfill.
Household batteries can be recycled in battery recycling bins at:
There are also battery recycling bins in most shops that sell batteries.
