Did you know, that if you throw anything with a battery in the non recycling bin either at kerbside or at a HRC this can cause vehicle fires? When a battery gets crushed or damaged it can cause a fire inside the waste vehicle causing damage to the vehicle and delays to your collection rounds. There are so many places to dispose of batteries safely including some district collections, most supermarkets and DIY shops and the Household Recycling Centres. You can also visit https://www.takecharge.org.uk/ for more helpful information on battery recycling.
