Save Battery Waste

SaveBatteryWaste.Com provides guidance and resources on recycling batteries, including links to council policies and the most comprehensive map of UK Battery Recycling Collection points.

Join us!

During the Climate Week the Moixa Energy team will collect used batteries from all offices in Primrose Hill for recycling. If you are willing to do the same in your office building or in your area, please contact us and we will help you find your closest battery collection point. You also will receive a 50% voucher for a purchase of a USBCELL pack.

USBCELL is the world’s first truly portable AA rechargeable battery which makes recharging AA batteries easy- simply plug the USB connector found under its cap directly into any USB port to recharge up to 500 times. Save Energy and Save Money!

Why Recycle

  • In the UK, we get through 680 million domestic batteries every year, that's over 19,000 tonnes of batteries!
  • Most batteries contain toxic chemicals such as mercury, cadmium and lead.
  • Only 5% of dead batteries are safely destroyed and recycled.
  • The remaining 95% of dead batteries end up with normal rubbish in landfill, causing soil and water pollution.
  • EU law requires the UK to be recycling 25% of batteries by 2012 (or they may fine the UK!)
