B‑cycle ensures the batteries you collect get recycled

As a B‑cycle Drop off point, you collect used batteries from your organisation, school or broader community. Then, you work with an accredited B‑cycler collector, who will collect and transport the batteries to a recycling facility.

By accrediting everyone from importers to recyclers, B‑cycle makes sure that every battery brought to your Drop off gets safely recycled and made into something new.
