Start recycling your batteries 

The battery recycling collection container is an ideal size for workplace reception areas – so why not encourage your workplace to get involved in battery recycling.

There are three easy steps to start your battery recycling program:

  1. Call SUEZ on 13 13 35 and our customer service centre will deliver a battery recycling container
  2. Place the container in a prominent area of your workplace and encourage staff and visitors to fill the container with their used batteries
  3. Once the container is full, call 13 13 35 to arrange collection and a replacement container

A small charge is applied to cover collection and recycling costs.
