Battery Recycling Programme
The WMRC's Battery Recycling Programme collects used household batteries (A, AA, AAA, C, D, button, 9V and 6V) and sends them for recycling.
- AA and AAA cells (single use & rechargeable batteries)
- C and D sized batteries
- Button batteries (e.g. from watches)
- 9V batteries
- 6V batteries (e.g. lantern/torch batteries)
There are a number of convenient battery drop-off locations across Perth's western suburbs. Click here to find them.
Household batteries contain metals such as zinc, manganese and steel which, like many natural resources, are found in limited supply. Separating batteries for recycling reduces the incidence of these valuable metals ending their life in landfill.
