scrap stainless steel

The average household uses 21 batteries a year. The UK generates 20,000 - 30,000 tonnes of waste general purpose batteries every year, but less than 1,000 tonnes are recycled. The rest of Europe does significantly better than the UK, with Belgium topping the league with a 59% recycling rate for batteries.

There are a number of different types of household batteries used for a variety of purposes.

All waste batteries are hazardous and there is stringent legislation governing their handling, storage, transport and disposal.

There are three main types of battery and Moores Recycling can provide a collection and recycling service on all of the following:

  • Wet-cell: Lead acid batteries used to power vehicles and by industry.
  • Zinc carbon & Zinc Chloride
  • Alkaline Manganese
  • Button cells:
  • Dry-cell rechargeable:

  • Nickel metal hydride (NiMH)
