How to dispose of your batteries correctly 02/07/2021

When disposing of your used batteries it is important not to throw them in your recycling or general waste bins. The batteries could become crushed or compacted in transport. At our waste management and recycling facilities, the batteries may be mixed with other materials and shredded or exposed to heat. All of this could cause a fire.

Batteries can be recycled at your local retailer or at our recycling centres in Dunboyne and Ballyogan. Find out more here.
