Battery Bins

20230405 074308Due to the hazardous and corrosive nature of batteries, these items can start fires in the back of rubbish trucks and should NOT be placed in either the yellow lidded recycling bin or general waste bin. Instead, you can recycle batteries in our dedicated Battery Bins!

Our battery bins will accept most battery types!

Types of batteries that are accepted in our battery bins

  • Standard household batteries
  • Power tool batteries
  • Storage batteries
  • Phone and computer batteries
  • Button cells
  • Batteries from e-bikes

Unfortunately, the bins do not accept car batteries, but these are free to drop off at the Gympie Waste Management Facility
