B-cycling, more than re‑cycling
B-cycle is about creating a responsible battery lifecycle – from buying better batteries for the planet, to safe use, and convenient recycling.
As a national, Government-backed Scheme, B-cycle brings together everyone from importers, to retailers, to everyday Australians, to give dead batteries new life.
The Scheme is run by the Battery Stewardship Council, and authorised by the ACCC.
Building a planet-friendly battery lifecycle
90% of Australia’s used batteries end up in landfill, where they leak toxic materials into the environment. B-cycle is here to make a change, by keeping batteries (and their contents) out of our soils and waterways.
Reusing the precious materials in every battery also means that we mine less from the earth, and can conserve nature and its resources. B-cycling creates economic opportunities for recyclers, and strengthens Australia’s energy security for future generations.
