The Waste Batteries and Accumulators Regulations 2009
In 2009, new regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were introduced. The Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from the current rate of about 3% to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.
Under the Waste Battery Regulations, Mobile Fun are now offering a take back scheme for all portable waste batteries. You can return your waste batteries to our business premises* in person (please do not post).
Alternatively, you can find your local waste portable battery recycling facility at www.recyclenow.com
Most supermarkets and shops that sell batteries will have collection bins for used batteries, and some town halls, libraries or schools may also set up collection points. End-users may find stores in their local area more accessible.
Please note: this service only applies to householders and not businesses
