Battery Recycling | YPO

Corporate Social Responsibility

Recycling your used batteries with YPO

By recycling your used batteries you are contributing to protecting our environment and the Earth's natural resources. We offer a free recycling service to all customers that purchase batteries from YPO.

Your role in contributing to the recycling of waste batteries and in preventing pollution of the environment is essential. Each used battery that you place in a recycling box will be taken apart and many of the materials will be recovered and used to make new batteries or something else. All batteries are labelled with an icon to indicate that they should not be disposed of as normal waste, but in specific recycling centres.

If you are able to travel to Wakefield, please drop in any used batteries at YPO, 41 Industrial Park, Wakefield, WF2 0XE. Alternatively, please visit www.batteryback.org to identify a battery collection point near you that will accept your used batteries free of charge. Batteryback is one of six UK approved battery recycling schemes. You can also contact your local authority for information on a recycling facility in your area that will take back your used batteries.

Please do not return your used batteries to YPO via mail.
