There are a number of options throughout the county to recycle WEEE:
All retailers that sell portable batteries (AA, AAA, Cell C, Cell D, etc.) are required to take back waste batteries from members of the public free of charge. Take-back is on a one for zero basis meaning there is no purchase necessary. All supermarkets and retailers that sell batteries within WEEE Ireland’s collection areas should have a blue WEEE Ireland battery box on their premises where you can dispose of your waste batteries and help LauraLynn!
• Your waste batteries can be recycled in our two Civic Amenity sites in Silliot Hil, Kilcullen and Gallows Hill, Athy. You can contact them here. This recycling service is free-of-charge for members of the public wishing to recycle waste batteries (any other waste will be charged for).
• WEEE Ireland organises and promotes Public Collection Events of WEEE and waste batteries in areas which do not have convenient access to Civic Amenity sites. Any household item with a plug or battery will be accepted at these collection, and all waste batteries will be accepted free of charge, including AA and AAA batteries, torch batteries, watch batteries, car batteries and electric fence batteries.
