This article is about car battery care more than what to do with your scrap battery. For some really strange reason drivers in the UK keep the old scrap car battery in their garage? this is really strange? when i have asked them why they do this they all reply with a similar answer.
The answer is that they are saving the old battery in case they need it in the future. When i asked them why they say that, you never know when you might need one”
But i explain that their battery is dead and only scrap, then they don’t believe me and still precede to keep it.
Your old car battery is actually worth a few pounds! As a
battery retailer we collect the old batteries and then take them to the waste collection centre.
All of the waste scrap car battery journeys are covered by the “transfer of waste” regulations, here in the UK and waste collection centres can only accept the scrap battery delivery, if they are officially registered with the government.
The movement of waste battery products in the UK is strictly regulated. if you are disposing of a single scrap car battery, then you can take it to your local council waste facility, where you can place it in a specially marked place. Please do not throw it away or in your household bin.
