The A to Z of waste items and which bin they should go in
Lead acid batteries
Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC)
We do not collect this type of waste as part of the household waste collection service but you can take it to a Household Waste Recycling Centre.
Please check at the HWRC for special instructions regarding asbestos, car or lead-acid batteries, tyres, gas cylinders or other pressurised containers.
This will be sent direct to a reprocessing facility.
You can find your nearest HWRC on our Find My Nearest tool.
