City Shredding offers a recycling service for portable batteries in line with the 2006 European Directive on battery collection and recycling.

Some batteries contain lead, cadmium and mercury and if you throw them in your rubbish bin the chances are they will end up in landfill, if these chemicals pollute the soil and water they can have the potential to harm human health.

Like other materials that are recycled battery recycling will save natural resources, reducing the need to mine for raw materials in turn saving CO2 emissions.

It takes 50 times more energy to make a battery than it gives during its life.
