Recycle at The Original Factory Shop today Batteries Under the Waste Battery Regulations, The Original Factory Shop now offers a take back scheme for all portable waste batteries. There’ll be a waste battery collection bin, where you’ll be able to dispose of all your used batteries (*Except industrial and car batteries) free of charge! You don’t have to do anything else other than bring your old batteries for us to recycle. Waste batteries can be returned to any local store (for a full list see store locator; please do not post). The batteries that we collect will be sent for proper treatment to ensure that as many of the chemicals and materials as possible can be recycled or disposed of safely. Currently, much of this waste ends up in landfill where the harmful substances in some batteries can cause pollution and potentially be a hazard to health. You shouldn’t put batteries in your dustbin and that’s why these items are now marked with a crossed out wheelie bin symbol.
