Battery Recycling BinProduct Code: BC/5/WEB
Did you know that from February 2010, retailers selling more than 32kg of batteries per year (approximately 345x four-packs of AA batteries) have to provide battery recycling collection facilities in-store?
This compact Battery Recycling Bin is a purpose designed unit, ideal for the collection of multiple battery types in various applications.
What is this Battery Recycling Bin manufactured from?
This circular transparent battery collection unit is manufactured from a galvanised steel lid and base and a clear polythene body. Featuring a hinged lift up lid for easy emptying and pink colour coding with WRAP vinyl iconography.
What can be collected in the bin?
This bin has been specifically manufactured for the collection of used batteries, to be stored away before being recycled. The unit features a small circular aperture which helps to stop users from placing incorrect waste inside the unit. The circular hole is big enough to accommodate most batteries up to a size D.
Ideal for collecting household batteries such as AA and AAA, as well as button style watch batteries. This Battery Recycling Bin can hold a capacity of 5 litres.
Where should this bin be placed?
These battery recycling units have a small footprint and are perfect for use around schools, supermarkets, shopping centres and universities. They also add a nice splash of colour to offices as they use the standard WRAP battery recycling colour (pink) to identify their use.
This unit is freestanding, so is perfect for being placed on top of desks and cabinets, however it is also suitable for wall mounting and comes fitted with a bracket to the back so that it can be easily screwed in place.
How is the bin emptied?
This bin utilises a simplistic, lift-up lid design that is easy to empty. The clear body keeps the contents visible, making it easy to see when the bin is ready to be emptied and to also prevent the risk of incorrect waste being placed inside the bin.
Can this Battery Recycling Bin be customised?
This unit comes as standard with a clear body and pink lid and base unit. If you would like to order a different colour, you can choose from any of our standard powder coating colours. You can also opt for custom graphics to display your own artwork or promote your recycling initiative. Take a look at Hubbub’s battery recycling campaign if you need ideas!
If you like this unit but don’t want to collect batteries, no problem! We think it suits a variety of applications and locations, so we’re happy to manufacture it without the ‘battery’ vinyl artwork if you require.
Why should you recycle batteries?
According to recycle-more.co.uk, 12,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions could be avoided if the UK recycles more batteries. Batteries are everywhere in our daily life, from toys and remote controls to mobile phones and doorbells. The average person in Britain uses at least 10 per year.
Batteries that are disposed of in normal rubbish bins are sent to landfill, where they begin to rot and the harmful chemicals inside them may leak into the ground, causing soil and water pollution. This pollution not only harms the environment, but it can also harm animals and humans too. With that in mind, we really don’t think it’s a bad idea to make sure you always recycle your batteries, do you? We’ve even found a great link to tell you where you can recycle batteries, take a look.
How to reduce battery waste
As batteries are such a huge part of everyday life, it’s not always easy to find an alternative. That’s why we manufacture these units; to help facilitate the recycling of batteries. If you’re looking for ideas to reduce battery waste, try using rechargeable batteries or plugging electrical equipment into the mains where possible. You could also choose to purchase appliances that use renewable energy such as dynamo bicycle lights and solar powered garden lights.
