Battery Back Network

The Battery Back network was established in 2008 to meet forthcoming EU regulations on ‘Waste Batteries and Accumulators’. The Directive states that 25% of all Batteries must be recycled by 2012 and this should increase to 45% by 2016. The UK currently recycles less than 3% of it’s Batteries leaving more than 30,000 Tonnes of Batteries being sent to landfill each and every year!

Battery Back is a free national recovery network for all types of batteries operated by consumers in the UK. The network currently numbers at 2,000 Battery Recycling points and this is expected to grow to 60,000 by 2012.
