Zero Waste Scotland 190pxACR+ member Zero Waste Scotland is reminding Scots that they should recycle batteries separately to other household waste after a new survey revealed that 25% of people who responded admitted they disposed of batteries in the general household bin.

Batteries contain valuable materials so binning them when they run out wastes resources that can be reclaimed and reused in other products. The most popular means of disposal is via battery bins found in front of store at retail outlets, with 39% of people saying they already do this. 21% of people said they used a household waste recycling centre or public recycling facility when disposing of their batteries.
