Household Battery Recycling Program

Australians use thousands of tonnes of batteries every year, most of which end up in landfill. This is a problem because a wide range of battery types contain toxic metals such as cadmium, mercury and lead, and over time the chemicals in these batteries can be toxic to the environment. Other battery types contain valuable materials like magnesium and zinc which can be recycled for future use.

To help combat this, the Macarthur Councils are implementing a battery recycling program to assist residents with an environmentally friendly way to dispose of their domestic household batteries.

Any brand AA, AAA, C, D and 9V batteries (both rechargeable and non-rechargeable) are accepted, simply drop your used batteries (removing any packaging) into the dedicated bins and you're done!
