Batteries (household)

We take all batteries but we only collect nickel cadmium (NiCd), nickel-metal hydride (NiMH), lithium ion (Li-ion) and other batteries which contain hazardous metals. These hazardous batteries are often rechargeable batteries and found in mobile phones, cordless power tools, laptop computers, shavers, electric toothbrushes, motorised toys, and digital cameras. The average alkaline household battery cannot be recycled in NZ, and are disposed of in landfill.
Solution: Using rechargeable batteries and a battery charger, this will save you money as well as reduce the number of batteries sent to landfill.
