Batteries can be hazardous if disposed of incorrectly in your general waste bin and can cause significant harm to the environment.
Our five library locations are now equipped as collection points for the safe recycling of domestic batteries.
Batteries you can recycle with us include:
- Cell-type batteries (AA, AAA, C and D)
- Button batteries from calculators, watches and many toys
- 9-volt batteries
- Mobile phone batteries (which can also go into our Mobile Muster collection)
- Small rechargeable batteries from cameras, cordless phones, shavers and some power tools
Our Mobile Muster bins are also available at our libraries for the safe disposal of unwanted mobile phones.
Look for our collection bins or ask your friendly local library staff for assistance and help us protect our local environment.
