What batteries are B‑cyclable?

Loose household batteries (AA & other sizes, button & rechargeable)

Proprietary batteries included in products, that can be easily removed by consumers (e.g. camera, e-bike, drone & power tool batteries)

Additional battery types will be included as the scheme expands

It’s also easy to set up a Drop off point

3 out of 4 Australians say that a B‑cycle Drop off gives them more incentive to visit a store*. It’s a simple way to increase foot traffic, meet waste reduction targets, and create real, measurable impact.
