Safeguarding the environment, the economy, & everyone who depends on them
As a stewardship initiative, B-cycle accreditation gives confidence that used batteries are safely managed, recycled and remade into something new.
The Scheme is backed by the Battery Stewardship Council, supported by the Commonwealth and all State and Territory Governments, and authorised by the ACCC.
B‑cycle expands existing markets and facilitates new ones
Change is here, with batteries now covered by the Recycling and Waste Reduction Act 2020, which requires businesses take greater responsibility.
Demand for battery metals is also set to jump 500% by 2050, exceeding supply of some virgin materials.
B‑cycle builds on this economic opportunity by connecting industry leaders, and expanding material volumes through the Drop off network.
Get ahead of the change. Get accredited today.
How it works
Importers pay a levy which funds the Scheme
Retailers sell accredited battery brands
Used batteries are deposited at B-cycle Drop off points
Accredited participants earn rebates by collecting, sorting & recycling
Recovered materials make new batteries and other products
Earth’s finite resources are conserved
Woolworths is committed to taking steps to cut emissions, reduce plastic, source responsibly - and NOW, keeping as many household batteries as possible out of landfill. As one of Australia’s leading retailers, we are looking forward to leading the charge in this pivotal moment for battery recycling for both the retail sector and our customers.
Our customers expect sustainability in the battery lifecycle. Joining B-cycle makes Super Retail Group part of Australia’s battery solution and provides us an opportunity to make a difference.
B-cycle accreditation is a simple way for UBCO to make a real difference, and meet the needs of our increasingly eco-conscious customers. UBCO's overriding goal is to be a sustainable business at all points of the supply chain. Proper handling of the batteries that power our electric vehicles, which in turn power our customers purpose, is fundamental to that sustainability.
We are fortunate enough to be at the forefront of the electric revolution and we believe that it is our responsibility to support B-cycle and fundamentally change the narrative around battery sustainability in Australia. Good business, by every metric, shouldn't cost the earth.
Total Tools are a proud supporter of the B-cycle initiative and want to play our part in reducing harmful materials ending up in landfill. We care for our community and are committed to engaging with key partners to ensure we provide customers with a convenient drop off point at each of our stores Nationally.
