Join B-cycle as an accredited Drop off point Join B-cycle

B-cycle makes sure that the batteries your organisation, business or school collects get made into something new

As a Drop off point, you work with an accredited B-cycle Collector who will advise on your appropriate collection bin, and collect and transport the batteries to an accredited B-cycle recycling facility. The B-cycle collection bin you provide in partnership with your B-cycle Collector, provides a safe place for your organisation, business, school or broader community to drop off used batteries.

Drop off points are not eligible for Collection rebates, as these rebates are intended to incentivise and offset some of the costs of transporting batteries.

If you are applying for more than just one participant category, including battery Retailer, please contact us at contact@bcycle.com.au before completing the steps below.
